RI by Design

For centuries, Rhode Island has been shaped by the artisans, manufacturers, and workers who have lived and labored here.

Through the upturns and downturns of the state’s economic and political landscape, the spirit of ingenuity and entrepreneurship of Rhode Islanders has remained a constant.

Join us for programming and exhibitions that explore Rhode Island industry and innovation through a focus on Rhode Island by Design.
