Ashley Erling brings us “Eye on RI” featuring local events and activities!
Beacon of Hope- The WaterFire Arts Center will be open on a limited basis for visitors to experience the WaterFire Beacon of Hope installation. Created by the WaterFire team under the artistic direction of WaterFire creator and executive artistic director Barnaby Evans, the WaterFire Beacon of Hope presents a solitary illuminated WaterFire brazier in the Main Hall of the WaterFire Arts Center surrounded by a field of luminaria, each memorializing a Rhode Island soul lost to COVID-19. The installation, which also includes a field of stars overhead and WaterFire soundtrack can also be viewed online 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Each weekday evening at 8:30 p.m. EDT, a ceremony takes place with luminaria added to the installation for each Rhode Island life reported lost that day.
Audubon Small Group Explorations- Audubon is offering small group explorations – designed with safety in mind. Get up close with some cool critters, take a walk to the shore or enjoy a Bats and Beer evening program. Audubon knows how to keep it cool – and safe – in July when the weather gets hot and muggy! Note: Rhode Island Covid-19 safety guidelines will be followed for all programs with small groups led Audubon naturalists. Family units are encouraged to participate together. Masks and social distancing are required. Participants must bring their own masks. Advance registration is required, and a parent or guardian must accompany children.
