WaterFire Arts Center Groundbreaking
Today was the official groundbreaking ceremony for the WaterFire Arts Center. Many public supporters of WaterFire were there to speak about what the Art Center means for WaterFire, for the State, and for the future of the neighborhood.
Governor Gina Raimondo remarked, “We all know how special WaterFire Providence is to Rhode Island. It’s a shining example of how the arts can be an economic driver and create jobs. Everywhere I travel, people bring up WaterFire- I tell them, come visit Rhode Island and check it out!”
