Because Art Builds Connection, and Connection Builds Community

The Hope Tree Art Exhibition is an initiative of the Newport Health Equity Zone’s Arts & Culture Working Group and the Newport Art Museum. This outdoor public art exhibition, now in its fourth year, celebrates the strength, diversity, hopes and voices of individuals, families, community organizations connected to the North End of Newport.

Open to anyone, participants were invited to share their hopes for the community, and were provided with the materials to decorate a canvas around an inspirational work of their choice. Over 20 original works, representing over 50 creative individuals, are now on view in beautiful Miantonomi Park for everyone to enjoy this summer.

Opening Reception for the Artists:
