On May 6, at noon, in the bus terminal of Kennedy Plaza, a little storefront is going to open that is going to be the subject of a lot of hoopla. It's the opening of ART TIX, a new service of the Arts and Business Council of Rhode Island
ArtTix will provide a comprehensive information, marketing and ticketing service for arts and cultural organizations in Providence, the state of Rhode Island and South Eastern New England. They are going to maintain an up-to-date arts calendar, have a store front to sell tickets to various events (including some events that might not normally have an advance box office)
Their website ArtTixRI.com isn't currently active, but expect that to change by May 6!
At the May 6 opening, Governor Carcieri, Mayor Cicilline, and NBC's Karin Reed will all be in attendance, along with performances by some local art groups. It should be exciting!
