WaterFire, Providence, Rhode Island

Part sculpture, festival, and ceremony, WaterFire is the brainchild of artist Barnaby Evans. Imagine nearly one hundred crackling bonfires illuminating the night sky atop the three rivers of Waterplace Park in downtown Providence. Aromatic wood smoke fills the air as the wood burns in floating vessels, and music from around the globe swells along the waterfront.
