About The Activisual Experiment
The Avenue Concept partnered with The Dean Hotel to host the first-of-its-kind Activisual Experiment in Providence. In conjunction with PIAF, The Avenue took over a parking lot behind The Dean for an entire day of programming, exhibition, and interactive public art.
The Activisual Experiment featured an interactive pop-up skate and sculpture lounge complete with local DJs coordinated by Justin Case and an all-styles dance floor led by FaCce of Project 401. Vendors, including MINT Vintage, Leviathan Exchange, Faust Hofbrauhaus, Bolt Coffee Co., and Tricycle Ice Cream Cart, were joined by over a dozen local artists who showcased their work.

In addition, 10 local artists painted art chairs, 6 works by local sculpture artists were featured on pedestals, 3 local artists painted the skate ramps, and The Avenue’s Zipcar “art car” was there adding another unique element to the event.
To capture it all, a team of 8 local photographers, along with a videographer and a cinematographer, documented all of the creative energy and excitement before, during, and after PIAF.
As our team worked to meet the myriad of challenges an event of this magnitude brings, we were fortunate to be able to develop new partnerships throughout the City. In particular, we are grateful to The Dean Hotel, Blake’s Tavern, and Adler’s Design Center & Hardware—thank you for helping us make it happen! We look forward to our continued collaboration in the future.
