Support a Living Artist!
VOTE FOR ART: Gallery Night Providence is excited to introduce our latest initiative, the “Vote for Art” program. The “Vote for Art” program is a contest that awards cash prizes to living, contemporary artists exhibiting at any one of the twenty-four Gallery Night venues.
Three Months of VOTING – One Artist Per Month!
This program will run from August through October of 2014. Each of these months, Gallery Night venues will select up to 10 pieces of art to enter into the “Vote for Art” competition. The public will then be able to vote, both online and in person, for their favorite artwork. One winner will be selected per month, with prizes awarded on the following Gallery Night.
Sustaining the CREATIVE Capitol
The “Vote for Art” prize seeks to build on the foundation of cultural tourism in Providence that Gallery Night continues to build and support, drawing visitors from all over the world and celebrating our local and international arts community.
Long Range Plan
We are thrilled to bring this contest to our community and anticipate expanding our vision in the years to come!
Gallery Night Providence Tours start from the Regency Plaza at One Regency Plaza and travel to 24 of Providence’s galleries, museums and historic sites. Guided tours begin at 5:20 and leave every 20 minutes. The final artbus of the evening leaves at 7pm.
Please join us in welcoming these new galleries to our organization this year:
Adirah, ArtProv, Cate Charles Gallery, and Dryden Gallery at Providence Picture Frame!
Enjoy being guided through the Creative Capitol!
