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. Participants are invited to share their hopes for the community, and will be provided with the materials to decorate a canvas around an inspirational work of their choice. Then the works will be installed around trees in beautiful Miantonomi Park for everyone to enjoy this summer.

  • We’ll deliver materials to you and then pick up your completed artwork by June 30
