“Crossing the Pell” with RISD and Bike Newport

Biking and Walking on the Pell Bridge? RISD students use technology to bring to life innovative designs for adding pedestrian and cycling lanes to Newport’s iconic bridge. Visitors to Crossing the Pell, a virtual reality (VR) installation, will have the unique opportunity to traverse the iconic Claiborne Pell Bridge on foot or on bicycle and drink in breathtaking views of Narragansett Bay. Pre-registration for specified arrival times is encouraged, but not required. Those arrival times are spaced 30 minutes apart, though visitors may stay as long as they wish. Drop-in attendance is also welcome. All ages are welcome, and feedback from diverse participants is desired. To pre-register for your desired arrival time, please visit Free.
