With glow-in-the-dark letters! A more fitting and durable marker has replaced the original wooden sign at H. P. Lovecraft Memorial Square, located at the intersection of Angell and Prospect Streets. According to the artist Gage Prentiss,
This is a cold cast bronze sign for H P Lovecraft Memorial Square in Providence Rhode Island. It was funded and installed by the Lovecraft Arts and Sciences Council, and Necronomicon Providence 2015. The letters glow in the dark. It measures 18 inches across by 24 inches tall.
Seen here: the letters charge up in the noonday sun. We will try to check out the nighttime display soon.
Don’t forget about NecronomiCon 2015 — the International Conference of Weird Fiction, Art, and Academia — which runs from August 21-23. Ticket info here.
