BUY ART Providence
Since December 2008 Mayor David N. Cicilline and the City of Providence Department of Art, Culture + Tourism have partnered with Providence arts venues and individual artists on a marketing and advocacy BUY ART campaign. Whether you buy art for $5, 50 or 5,000, a ticket to a performance, a museum membership or a studio class, participating venues are pleased to offer each art buyer a limited edition "I BUY ART" pins. The 2009 pins with five original designs featuring the artwork of Providence artists are now available at venues throughout the city. COLLECT — INVEST — GIVE — EXPERIENCE ...the Providence Arts Scene.
BUY ART Providence window is styled by Lisa Newman Paratore, owner of HOMESTYLE, and Karen Beebe, owner Queen of Hearts (and designer of the dress displayed). Items on display are from an assortment of our artsy downtown merchants. The painting is by Angel Quinonez and is one of the five artworks selected for this year's I BUY ART advocacy buttons. The felt and feathered necklace worn by the mannequin is from Queen of Hearts and made by artist Nori Swennes especially for this Providence Art Window!
