Art in downtown Providence?

Here’s a little article I wrote about art in downtown Providence. If you follow this stuff, you probably already know that tenants are moving into 19 studio and living spaces that AS220, the city’s landmark downtown cultural center, developed in the former Dreyfus Hotel on Washington Street. But it’s still great news.

And Ari Heckman, of downtown Providence redevelopment juggernaut Cornish Associates, tells me that Cornish hopes to find a collaborator to operate a standing gallery in one of their downtown locations – something like the Space at Alice on Union Street, its joint venture with the Arts and Business Council of Rhode Island that lasted from 2003 until last winter. If you’re interested, contact him.
