Rhode Island isn’t just the birthplace of religious freedom or the American Industrial Revolution. Thanks to Senator Claiborne Pell, it’s also where the National Endowment for the Arts was born. Congratulations to the NEA on its 50th anniversary.
In collaboration with Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts looks at the arts and culture of Rhode Island. Developed as part of the NEA’s 50th Anniversary United States of Arts: Tell Us Your Art Story series.
