Event Details

Please join SEG on Thursday, September 20 for a PVD Green Drinks discussion about public art at The Avenue Concept!

Located in Providence's upper Southside on Lockwood Street and founded in 2012, The Avenue Concept was the city's first private public art program. Since then it has installed or exhibited more than 150 works of public art, and invested $1.1million in both artwork and infrastructure. 

Here's where the environment comes in! Next summer, The Avenue Concept will host internationally known artist Steven Siegel to build a massive sculpture on Kennedy Plaza using recycled materials!

For this month's Providence Green Drinks, we will bring together The Avenue Concept's Artists in Residence Jen Long (Whale Guitar Project) and Bonnie Combs (avid reuser and creator of reusable products at Bird Brain Designs). Jen and Bonnie are sourcing more than 20 cubic yards of plastic material for the project and invite the public to participate in a special recycling program and contribute to the art installation. 

Join the conversation about recycling and why China has put a ban on accepting waste from the U.S., and learn what you can do to improve and reduce your impact on the planet. 

Win two tickets to ecoRI News Zero Trash Birthday Bash on Sunday, September 30 at Troop! Simply bring empty, clean colored plastic bottles/containers (with caps and lids on) and receive a raffle ticket for each piece. The more clean plastic you bring, the more Enter to Win tickets you receive!

(Examples include shampoo bottles, laundry detergent, cleaning products, deodorant, etc. No food containers, please).


These monthly events are made possible in partnership with: Cleantech Open NortheastEcoRI NewsNew England Clean Energy Council/Navigate, and Slater Technology Fund.
