The Providence-based arts organization AS220 is celebrating its 30th anniversary Saturday night with a big party at Lupo's Heartbreak Hotel in Providence. After a humble start in a small room in the Providence Performing Arts Center back in 1985, AS220 has grown to become an arts and performance powerhouse

, organizing art shows, concerts, youth programs and a collection of community workshops and even artist residences. 

Now is a time of celebration and change for the organization. Founder Bert Crenca has turned over his duties as Artistic Director to a protege, Sheyla Rivera. Rhode Island Public Radio's Chuck Hinman talked with both of them about the past and future of AS220.RIPR's Chuck Hinman talks with AS220's Bert Crenca and Sheyla Rivera
