On August 7th RISCA escorted budget analysts from the House and Senate Fiscal Staff and the State Office of Management and Budget on a tour of cultural facilities and public art sites throughout the State of Rhode Island.
This was an opportunity to provide direct “off-the-page and in-the-field” experience about state investment in cultural facilities and public art to our colleagues in the House, Senate and State Budget Office. It was a full day of traveling to a variety of sites.
RISCA’s amazing Public Art Manager, Elizabeth Keithline, organized the day’s tour. Here’s where we went:
9:00 am – Cultural Facilities project at the Common Fence Improvement Association, 933 Anthony Road, Portsmouth
10:00 am – Public art projects at the Veterans Home, 480 Metacom Ave, Bristol
11:30 am – Cultural Facilities projects at the RI Philharmonic, 667 Waterman Ave, E Providence
