Mayor Elorza's Community Gallery showcases artwork created as a way to deepen the public's understanding of important social issues and as expressions of community healing, and works created by students of all ages.



"Birds of a Feather"
On View: February 24th - March 31st, 2016
Artist Reception: Tuesday, March 8th 2pm - 4pm


For the past two years, Resources for Human Development Rhode Island (RHD-RI) artists have been sketching birds with instructor Amy Rostkowski at Rhode Island School of Design's Nature Lab. In 2016, RHD programs in Rhode Island & Massachusetts will be collaborating on a bird themed art project that will "migrate" to each of the states. Featured in Mayor Elorza's Community Gallery are some dynamic examples of the artwork that will be flying south (and north) in the coming months.



ART LEAGUE OF RI POCKET GALLERY

The City of Providence and Mayor Jorge O. Elorza have partnered with the Art League of Rhode Island (ALRI) to transform an administrative office area in Providence City Hall into a gallery space which showcases the work of ALRI elected members.
The gallery space, located outside of Mayor Elorza's office, is rotated on a bi-annual basis. Part of ALRI's mission is to provide a venue for the growth and encouragement of artists and to promote high standards in the visual arts.


Works of Audrey Monahan, Paul M. Murray and David DeMelim
On View: March - August, 2016


PERMANENT COLLECTION

Featured in Providence City Hall's permanent collection are portraits of Providence's mayors over the years. The portraits are located throughout Providence City Hall.
The portraits cover a 150-year period (1832 - 1991) and are the most complete collection of mayoral portraits in the United States. Framed biographies of each mayor are installed adjacent to the portraits.



Alice K. Miles, a graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, is shown restoraing a portrait in the hallway of the fifth floor of Providence City Hall to allow the public and students to view her work and ask questions about the restoration process. More Info
