Artwork Coming to RIPTA Shelters
The City of Providence is teaming with Rhode Island Public Transit Authority to spruce up 17 bus shelters along 2 major bus routes. City art, tourism and planning officials will search for artists and artist groups with experience in public art design.
Artists are asked to generate concepts based on North Main Street’s history or Broad Street’s multicultural heritage. Besides these renovations, the city states that the “artwork will reflect the unique characteristics of the neighborhoods along each route.”
An open information session will be held on June 25th at 444 Westminster Street in Providence, RI from 6 – 7:30PM. For more information, visit www.providenceri.com/ArtCultureTourism
