WaterFire Providence, the award-winning sculpture by Barnaby Evans installed on three rivers in downtown Providence, has been praised by Rhode Island residents and visitors alike as a powerful work of art and a moving symbol of Providence's Renaissance. All Full WaterFire installations light up over eighty braziers from Waterplace Park to Memorial/South Main Street Park. Lighting occurs shortly after sunset and the event continues until half past midnight. Basin lightings include the circle of twenty-two braziers in the Waterplace Park Basin and the twelve braziers leading up to the Providence Place mall. Partial lightings usually include all of the braziers from Providence Place Mall to Steeple Street.
