"Convergence now participates in the successful arts-aided urban renewal of the center of Providence by placing sculpture in parks, plazas, and lobbies, along streets, rivers, and canals, and on buildings and trees throughout the downtown. Best of all, this cityscape reinvigorated by public art changes each year. The temporary approach allows for artistic and technical experimentation and plays the bete noire of public art: invisibility through overexposure. Providence now has a wonderful collection of public art that changes every year to keep pace with contemporary developments and that reflects the artistic vitality of the city. Convergence has also been a boon to sculptors. Over 300 emerging artists have found a highly visible venue. For Unlike most public art programs, Convergence encourages innovation and risk-taking"
