  • Brief Description

    The City of Pawtucket, RI is seeking qualifications from visual artists in association with our 2022 Pleasant Street Mural Project, made possible in part by a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). Located at the intersection of Jenks Way and Pleasant Street, the site runs parallel to the Blackstone River from downtown Pawtucket to the City of Providence. This roadway corridor serves as a gateway into and out of downtown Pawtucket. Although this route experiences predominately vehicular traffic, the City of Pawtucket expects a significant increase in pedestrian activity in this area as a result of the ongoing Tidewater Landing development project. The northernmost portion of Pleasant Street includes a large concrete retaining wall that is highly visible and ideal for public artwork.
