Arts and culture run in the very veins of Providence and Rhode Island.  They are part our hallmark as the “Creative Capital,” a driving force behind our economy, and a reason for young and old to work, play and live in our communities. But, this wasn’t always the case. From 1950 to 2000, painters, sculptors, illustrators and photographers would call Rhode Island their home, long before it was the burgeoning arts scene we know today, and long before it was a nurturing environment for artists of any ilk. We owe them our thanks and our recognition.

Some of the featured artists of this historic exhibition include:

  • Carmel Vitullo
  • Larry Sykes
  • Mahler Ryder
  • Sal Mancini
  • Ana Flores
  • Howard Ben Tré
  • Karnig Nalbandian
  • Joe Norman
  • Jane Motley
  • Eugene Tonoff
  • Mabel Ducasse
  • Gabe Capuano
  • Robert Lamb
