In addition to TroopTop and Club Sol, it’s the June Gallery Night in the city. Gallery Night Providence has organized a timed trolley tour that leaves the WaterFire Arts Center at 6:30 p.m. visiting two other arts spaces and stops back at the WFAC, tour-goers are encouraged to come early or stay after the tour to enjoy the music, sips, and art.

TroopPVD will donate a portion of the proceeds from sales of their specialty cocktail to WaterFire in support of the WaterFire Accelerate program. WaterFire Accelerate is a year-long professional development program for arising artists under 30 that is specifically devised to grant access to resources that will further participants’ artistic careers.
