Arts & Culture

Many local artists and famous talents call the Creative Capital home. Surrounded by local colleges like the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), Providence travelers will enjoy a wide range of artistic expression. Art fairs showcase local and international talent while summer concerts host performers of all genres. Nonprofit group AS220 strives to protect freedom of expression by offering studio space for all artists. From theater performances at the Providence Performing Arts Center and Trinity Repertory Company, to bonfires on the three rivers in downtown Providence during WaterFire, there is never a shortage of art, culture and flavor in Providence.
