In The Waves by Melissa McGill is an admission-free public art project curated by Dodie Kazanjian created with an ensemble of local community members led by the artist and choreographer Davalois Fearon and Melanie George, dramaturg and producer.
Meaningful community engagement is at the heart of this vibrant movement based public art work, aiming to spark conversations and raise awareness about our relationship to water, sea level rise and our changing climate.

Performances are Aug 18-21 and 24-28 at 3pm and 4pm. Visitors are invited to interact with the artist, choreographer and ensemble between performances.

In the Waves is presented by Art&Newport and the Newport Restoration Foundation.

Registration not required but suggested at Newport Restoration’s website.
