Dean Avenue Activisual Experiment
Join The Dean Hotel and The Avenue Concept as they bring you emerging artists, local vendors and music by Pronk. This free experimental public art event first started at the Providence International Arts Festival. It was such a hit, they are bringing it back to highlight The Avenue Concept's new program INFLUX. Head over to the Washington Street corridor from noon until 8 p.m. to enjoy all of the fun.

WaterFire will be a full lighting this Saturday starting at sunset. Enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of WaterFire, an art installation of nearly 100 bonfires set ablaze on the surface of three rivers right in the middle of Providence. This event is sponsored by Webster Bank, Confucius Institute and US-China Institute at Bryant University and Lifetime Medical. The fires will be lit around 6:38 p.m.
