Providence, Rhode Island is a small city, in the smallest state; but the culture here is gargantuan. Universities, including the exceptional Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) pack the city and there are galleries, music venues and creative types everywhere you look. A recent stroll down Wickenden Street (along with Thayer Street, one of the main “happening” boulevards in PVD) revealed how art is everywhere in the bastion of self-expression. We’ve put together a gallery of street art encountered on that walk. While the city does play host to numerous large scale installations and murals (see the link above), ill fitting fashion, many of the tags we spotted on this jaunt were small scale, done on shipping labels or “hi, my name is” stickers. These nuggets of creative identity are just the type of grimey creation we love here at GG.
