Created By: The Avenue Concept
This South Side + West End Providence driving tour takes you through a number of public artworks produced and installed by The Avenue Concept.
On the tour, you will find mural installations from international and local artists that span different techniques, themes, and styles. While this is a driving tour, be sure to get out (as you are able), look at the work from different points of view, and pay attention to the layers of meaning. These works are some of our most complex installations and are worthy of a long look.
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.
