In 2016 the East Providence Arts Council received a grant from the Rhode Island Foundation to commission the sculpture "Rigging". This sculpture became the centerpiece in the new sculpture park at the end of Warren Ave in between Valley St and Waterfront Dr. On June 6, 2017 the city council passed a resolution officially naming the park "Watchemocket Sculpture Garden" Landscape architect Kevin Alverson was hired by EPAC to create a master design for the park which calls for more sculptures, seating walls, a gabion decorative wall, walkways, and decorative flowers and bushes. The Arts Council working with community partners is securing funding for these amenities. We thank you for your patience and support and look forward to seeing the project come to completetion.
