Providence Art Windows: Winter 2014/15

photo 3As you explore downtown Providence, look out for several new Providence Art Windows installations. At 60 Eddy Street, in the back of Two Brothers Beauty, you’ll see new work by Johnny Adimando, entitled Night Carriers I (The Red Circadian) on media on paper and mylar.

On the Eddy Street side of Rhode Island Housing, enjoy Soft Shoes (pictured right), a reverse applique quilt made with t-shirts by fiber artist Michele Leavitt. She cut several tee shirts to create two squares, shuffling and layering the colors, adding shoes with machine stitching and cutting.

In the URI library window at 80 Washington Street, see Mary Jane Begin’s piece as part of a larger exhibit, Art and Healing: Remembering Christiane Corbat—the Work Continues, through December 12th.

Providence Art Windows exhibits juried art and art installations to fill empty and underutilized storefront windows in downtown Providence to activate the streetscape and enhance the pedestrian experience. Shows change throughout the year and showcase local and nationally known artists. Use this map to find the installations, and check the blog for more details.
