Public Art at PAF.
The Pawtucket Arts Festival is launching new initiative to present public artworks throughout the City of Pawtucket during this year’s Festival.
For 19 years, the Pawtucket Arts Festival has celebrated the City’s creative and cultural life by presenting vibrant arts events during the month of September to Pawtucket residents and visitors to the Blackstone River Valley. We’ve collaborated with local and international producing partners to present dance, music, theatre, poetry, film, visual, and folk-traditional arts that evoke the City’s historic legacy and diverse communities. This year, we’re thrilled to add public art into our portfolio of arts offerings!
We’ve selected two artists – Keri King and Pneuhaus – and the money we raise during this fundraiser will support their work in full!
Meet the artists.
Keri King is a cross-disciplinary artist, based in Providence, RI. She received her BFA in Illustration from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2005. Keri’s creative practice incorporates illustration, public art, storytelling and the occasional foray into performance. In 2016, Keri self-published her first narrative picture book, Spectacles & Spectators and was awarded a grant from Providence Art, Culture + Tourism to create a multi-site installation for PVDfest; she is currently engaged as Providence Public Library’s 2017 Creative Fellow.
Pneuhaus is Matt Muller, Augie Lehrecke, and Levi Bedall. Together they work as a design collective playing within the fields of spatial design, temporary structures, and contemporary art to create large-scale immersive environments that relate to human scale. They focus on inflatables as their medium since inflatables are flexible to the environment, evoke playfulness, and are underutilized in contemporary design.
You make it possible.
We know that support comes is all sorts of forms. So, if you’re able to make the suggested donation of $50 – that’s great! If you’re able to make a smaller financial contribution, that’s great! Or if you’re able to make a time contribution and help to spread the word about our INDIEGOGO fundraising campaign throughout your network – that’s great, too!
Thank you so much for your support!
We look forward to presenting these public art works and to celebrating Pawtucket’s rich cultural and creative spirit with you this September.
