We are doing something special this Thursday Gathering. From 4 – 7 PM, guests will be able to witness Providence based public artist, YSANEL, create a new chalk mural live on the second floor of District Hall. This design will embody the innovation spirit of Providence.
YSANEL is a Providence, RI-born and -based public artist and poet of Dominican heritage whose work has been displayed locally and regionally. In 2017, she was awarded her first Public Art Residency by the City of Providence, and since then has been featured in Providence Monthly, worked as an Artist-in-Residence at the Dirt Palace, and was employed as a Mural Arts Instructor/Teaching Artist with AS220. One of her most well-known public art projects is a 60′ wide, permanent mural on the exterior of Madeline Selim Rogers Recreation Center.. YSANEL was classically trained in painting and sculpture at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts.
