Just 90 minutes south of Boston is an enchanting display of fuchsia, blue, yellow, green, and orange umbrellas magically floating in the New England sky. Part of Umbrella Sky Newport, this enchanting display just came to town and will be here through the summer and early fall, until October 5.
This is the first umbrella sky art instillation to ever debut in New England. The concept already exists in Europe, the Middle East, and even New York City. The canopy of floating umbrellas is located at Newport, Rhode Island’s Brick Market Place with production by ArtScape.
The 500 umbrellas form an enchanting rainbow-colored backdrop, perfect for selfies! And the block boasts dozens of eclectic shops to explore. On weekends, visitors can enjoy “Music Under an Umbrella Sky.”
Every Saturday and Sunday, the Umbrella Sky Project in Newport will host a series of local musicians. Live entertainment begins on Saturday, June 24 and takes place through the end of the display on October 5, each weekend.
Pop-up events such as a local craft fair, karaoke, kid’s bash and more are also expected to take place. Enjoy Newport under the captivating Umbrella Sky! Don’t miss your chance to catch the Umbrella Sky’s New England debut!
