A New Mural Debuts in Downcity

This one celebrates the State Theater of Rhode Island.

The Creative Capital has no shortage of great public art. (We're looking at you, The Avenue Concept.)

Much of the work sprouts up around Providence's signature event, PVDFest. But the city's newest street mural was unveiled today by the folks at Trinity Repertory Company, with support from the Providence Tourism Council, the Procaccianti Group, and Jack and Sara McConnell.

Providence Painted Signs created the mural, which features a yellow school bus coasting in front of Trinity Rep's historic facade, "The Creative Capital" lettered at the bottom of the piece.

According to a press release, "The mural also pays tribute to Project Discovery, Trinity Rep’s landmark student matinee program celebrating its fiftieth anniversary this year. The school bus in the mural represents the more than 1.3 million students exposed to the magic of live theater at Trinity Rep."

Bonus: The mural sits atop Trinity Brewhouse. Check it out, then head inside for a Maple Brown and some nachos.
