ATTEND OUR EVENTS
In addition to providing a space that is accessible to our community and cultural events curators, we also curate a variety of our own events.
Take a stroll down Sims Avenue in Providence’s Industrial Valley to visit our Bi- Monthly Art Markets. Discover a diverse group of makers and creatives showcasing and selling their latest work while enjoying music and local food. Take a tour of our industrial arts studio and find out what we’re all about!
During the September Art Market, we bring every department of our industrial arts studio out onto our campus with live demonstrations and participatory events. Witness the ancient art of blacksmithing, watch as our tilt-furnace gets up to high heat and pours molten iron onto sand molds, ceramic wheels spin clay into sculpture, and jewelers cut and tap metals into unique pieces of wearable art.
Annual Iron Pour and Sims Avenue Festival
Our Twentieth Anniversary Iron Pour will light up the skies over Sims Avenue on October 21, 2023! Melting over 2,000 pounds of luminous iron in our custom-built tilt furnace, a trained pour crew will activate larger than life sculptures with fire and molten metal. It’s a one-of-a-kind industrial art event! ADMISSION IS FREE!
While the fires burn high and hot during the Iron Pour, Sims Avenue is hopping with more than 30 local makers and artists, food and beverages from our neighbors and more! ADMISSION IS FREE!
