City Seeks RFQs for Design and Implementation of Crescent Park Beach Mural


East Providence, RI – The City of East Providence is seeking qualifications from artists or artist teams to design and implement a mural on a beachfront concrete wall at Crescent Park Beach. This 10-acre City park is located on Bullocks Point Avenue, between Narragansett Bay and the historic Looff Carousel, and until the 1970’s was home to the former Crescent Park amusement park. With water quality having considerably improved, it is the City’s goal to designate Crescent Park as a licensed, swimmable public beach.

“Over the last several years we have made several improvements to Crescent Park and Crescent Beach and the addition of a beautiful, new mural will add a sense of pride, history and offer a place for residents and visitors to the beach use the mural as a backdrop to the memories and selfies,” Mayor Bob DaSilva said. “The mural will prominently include the words “East Providence” and its design will reflect the history and culture of our City.”

The City will continue its improvements to the gem we call Crescent Park/Beach.”

Any questions should be directed to Johanna Walczak, Senior Planner, at jwalczak@easprovidenceri.gov  or Jessica Lamprey, Procurement Specialist at jlamprey@eastprovidenceri.gov  no later than FRIDAY, MARCH 1, 2024 AT 12:00PM.

Specifications may be downloaded from the City’s website https://eastprovidenceri.gov/rfp
