On the third Thursday of every month, from March through November, twenty-one of the city’s hot “art spots” open their doors, inviting you to a visual arts party. Guided bus tours leave approximately every 20 minutes starting at 5:30pm. Each tour visits 4–5 galleries and runs about 2 hours in length. The final Art Bus of the evening leaves at 7pm. This is the best way to see the creative side of Providence with celebrity guides telling you what makes them proud!
