Providence is known as the Creative Capital, and with all its artistic and cultural offerings, it's easy to see why.
Arts - Providence's preeminent art museum is housed at the Rhode Island School of Design, and exhibits a variety of art from the ancient to the modern.

During summer nights, discover WaterFire, a waterfront bonfire installation, complete with music and artisans.
