The I-195 Redevelopment District Interim Use Public Art Project

The I-195 Redevelopment District invites all persons currently residing or working in Rhode Island to enliven the community and activate public space with original installations for an interim period in Providence. This call for creative submissions is geared towards the recognition and celebration of all individuals in the state. All persons selected for this project will be asked to design temporary installations for specific sites within twenty acres freed up by the relocation of Interstate 195. This is an unusual occasion for creative placemaking that will contribute to the vitality and attractiveness of Providence’s urban landscape. It is our hope that the work installed within the twenty acres will enrich the surrounding urban environment and generate excitement for the I-195 land while giving local individuals a very visible space to showcase their creative talents. 
 
An information session will be held Monday, December 2, 2013. Submissions are due Wednesday, January 15, 2014. To download submission guidelines and an application, please visit Providence’s Art, Culture + Tourism site or 195district.com (site going live mid-November).
