Providence Art Windows Summer Season

Follow the Providence Art Windows trail from Westminster to Washington Street to view art installations by Sue Freda, Johnny Adimando, Karen Rand Anderson and Adrienne Adeyemi. Sue Freda presents sinuous wire dresses in the former Kresge store (191 Westminster), Johnny Adimando creates a drawing of collage elements inspired by cosmic symmetry, icons and symbols next to City Hall (Fulton Street), Karen Rand Anderson displays one on her large drawings of a chair being repaired by vines at RI Housing (44 Washington Street) and Adrienne Adeyemi shares her B&W silver gelatin portrait series at the URI Feinstein Providence Campus building (80 Washington Street). Work will remain in place through early September.

Since 2007, Providence Art Windows has exhibited juried art installations to help activate underutilized retail spaces in downtown Providence. Shows change three times a year and feature local and nationally known artists, juried by local residents, downtown artists and professionals.

Providence Art Windows is sponsored by The Providence Tourism Council, Rhode Island Housing, Rhode Island State Council on the Arts and The Providence Foundation. For more information about the project, visit:
