Welcome to The Avenue Concept’s interactive, self-guided public art tours! Whether you’re walking, riding, or driving, these comprehensive tours will help you explore dozens of murals and sculptures throughout Providence, RI, and other cities in the state. You can do as much or as little as you like, mix it up, do it backwards, stop in the middle and save some for later, only go to the sculptures or only to the murals – whatever you choose. These tours were designed to help you see the greatest number of artworks in one day.
Our tours are best experienced through the app. You can follow our suggested routes or create your own path through this open-air art gallery. The app provides an interactive experience, including photos, videos, and thought-provoking prompts to help you go deeper. You can also post your own photos to share the artworks that you love most with your friends.
The Avenue Concept is a nonprofit organization that makes public art happen. We invest in permanent infrastructure, fund public art installations, document and promote the work of artists, use art as a tool for education and connection, and advocate for policies, processes and partnerships that develop sustainable avenues for public art. Our goal is to build an environment in which art thrives and to create public art encounters that encourage people to engage and interact with art instead of passively observing it. We hope you enjoy the tours! Let us know what you think!
