Plan your visit and see Downtown Providence shine!
This tour is designed to guide you through all of the murals and sculptures that The Avenue Concept has installed in the Downtown Corridor. During your tour, we hope that you will support the local businesses and restaurants that make Downtown Providence so special.
To make the most of your visit, plan what time you'll go and where you will park (check to see if 2 hr parking is free!), where you will eat/take out, what you will wear to stay warm. Check out the map and the points of interest in advance. You can follow our specific route or wander to artworks from any direction, simply pick your preference through the app.
At each stop
You can learn more about the artwork by watching videos and reading more in the app. Dig deeper and explore each piece by considering our ~Take A Closer Look~ questions. If you are really enjoying your adventure, pull out a pen and paper and answer some of these more in-depth creative prompts in our Art Explorer creativity guide.
Two things to remember as you set off to discover:
Public art never closes! Public art is made to be enjoyed by the community as a source of inspiration, conversation, and engagement. Free and open to the public. If you love something, ask yourself why. If you don't, dig into that too! Art is meant to be an active way of engaging with the world. It’s something we all need.
YOU make public art happen. At The Avenue Concept, our tagline is "we make public art happen together". Our small-but-mighty team imagines public art installations, works with amazing artists to help implement those projects and then shares the stories of those artists and artworks with the community in order to make our cities more beautiful, livable, viable and safe. But as a nonprofit, we rely on people like you to help us make that happen through financial support, volunteering, and sharing what we do with your friends and family. Thank you! With your help, we make public art happen.
