Summer in the City

PVDFest is an annual event that typically transforms The Creative Capital into a boisterous celebration of art and culture. Unfortunately, the dumpster fire that is 2020 necessitated its cancellation this summer. But PVDFest’s commitment to public art hasn’t wavered. People out taking a socially distanced stroll through the city’s streets might have noticed three pieces of PVDFest-commissioned art pop up this season: “Head in the Clouds, Feet on the Ground,” by Jerold Ehrlich; “Bee Violet,” by Allison Newsome and Deborah Spears Moorehead; and “Dream Weave,” by Karin Giusti. These pieces will be on display until fall. For more information, go to
