Gallery Night Providence is hosting free guided tours of Providence’s art spaces this Thursday, Sept. 21. Five tours (at 4:45, 5, 5:30, 6, and 6:25 p.m.) depart from the Graduate Hotel on Dorrance Street, and tours at 5:05 and 6:30 p.m. depart from the WaterFire Arts Center on Valley Street.
The 5 p.m. tour is a walking tour led by Irene Yirbin with guest guide Yarrow Thorne, founder and executive director of The Avenue Concept. The 5:05 p.m. tour gives visitors the opportunity to go on their first Bird Scooter ride with Gallery Night, presented in partnership with the Woonasquatucket River Watershed Council. The scooter tour will view work in diverse mediums at Sprout CoWorking Gallery, offer a look at public art in Riverside Park and other neighborhood venues, and return back to WFAC to experience influential art surrounding vintage ’90s rock.
Advanced registration on the WRWC website is required. All other tours will be conducted via mini-coach or trolley. Gallery Night partner galleries also welcome individual visitors that evening free of charge.
