Providence streets get made over during Street Painting Festival
By NBC 10 News
Providence got a makeover on Saturday as local artists painted the streets for the 14th Annual Street Painting Festival.
Local artists, either individuals or groups, had the opportunity to create "paintings" with chalk on their own space on the floor of the downtown skating rink. The blank surfaces were then transformed into a variety of vibrant images for visitors and contestants to enjoy.
All proceeds from the festival benefit the Providence Rotary Charities Foundation, which gives grants yearly to organizations that are designed to enrich the lives of children in and around Providence.
