Downtown Providence, Rhode Island

The city’s downtown core offers significant public art in its park spaces, on city streets, at its civic and convention centers, and sited on buildings. In the Rhode Island Convention Center, look up to see a huge glass sculpture hanging overhead, created by renowned architect and MacArthur Fellow James Carpenter. Uncover a tribute to lasting love in a familiar fountain. Barnaby Evans, creator of WaterFire and an artist working in many media, shares details about these pieces and more as he leads our tour.
