Our goal is to transform Rhode Island into a vibrant, visual network that capitalizes on the strengths, talents, and diversity of its people.
The Avenue Concept nurtures and supports public art ecosystems. We do this by investing in permanent infrastructure, funding public art projects, documenting and promoting the work of artists, using art as a tool for education, and advocating for policies, processes and partnerships that develop sustainable avenues for public art. Our goal is to build an environment in which art thrives and create public art encounters that encourage people to engage and interact with art instead of passively observing it.
What We Do at The Avenue Concept
Since our launch in 2013, The Avenue Concept has developed and implemented public art projects and programs throughout Providence—and beyond. To fulfill our mission, we’re constantly looking for ways to create and strengthen our partnerships with artists and the greater community to bring public art to a broader audience.

Plus, we’re always on the lookout for new talent and new opportunities to help us promote public art in Providence.
