Our Favorite #RIArts Projects on Social Media

The state's working artists haven't slowed during social isolation.

At the end of April, Governor Gina Raimondo launched RIArts.org, an initiative that encourages Rhode Island artists to share work inspired by “this unique and challenging period,” according to the website.
