Thanks to support from a number of beneficiaries including WaterFire Providence and the Nash Family Foundation along with a wide outpouring of public support from members of the Providence community, the Detroit house Rosa Parks had taken refuge in after the tumultuous 1955 bus boycott has returned home to America. Ryan Mendoza’s “The Rosa Parks House Project” is an art installation that honors Rosa Parks and the struggles she faced due to her courageous leadership in the civil rights movement. The artwork was created with the support of the nieces and nephews of Rosa Parks and includes recreations of remembered details of her stay with them in that house.

Founded in 2014 by The Wilbury Theatre Group, FRINGEPVD (The Providence Fringe Festival) is open to anyone who wants to produce their own show. For some artists, it’s a once-a-year opportunity to create a show; for others it can be an opportunity to try something new.
Audiences are encouraged to take full advantage of the variety of performing & visual artists participating in the fringe. Attend performances that you wouldn’t normally attend, see things you wouldn’t otherwise see.
Keep an open mind, and have fun.
