This video takes you behind the scenes of one of The Avenue Concept's biggest and most high profile projects yet, a massive mural in the heart of Providence painted by one of the leading street artists in the world, Gaia.

 Baltimore-based Gaia is one of "The 100 Leading Figures in Urban Art" (according to a 2010 book of the same name). His large-scale murals often draw inspiration from the communities in which they’re created, depicting faces of noteworthy historical figures or local leaders partially obscured by flowers and other plant life native to the region. This is why The Avenue Concept brought him to Providence to paint the east-facing wall at Custom House Street, the most prominent location yet for their mural program. The resulting work, "Still Here," is inspired by the history of the Custom House Street location, as well as the indigenous peoples of Rhode Island. The wall is close to Weybosset Street, which is named for an indigenous footpath, and a trading location that later became one of the first custom houses in America. The Avenue Concept partnered with the Tomaquag Museum in Exeter to develop a concept and research the history; this led to a connection with artist Lynsea Montanari, a member of the Narragansett tribe and an educator at the museum. She collaborated with Gaia on the concept and composition of the mural and is featured as a subject in it, depicted holding a picture of Princess Red Wing, a Narragansett elder who founded the Tomaquag Museum 60 years ago.
