    Providence is famous for among other things RISD, Rhode Island School of Design. As such, the area is laden with artists and folks who 'think different".

    Here's a building who's rear side was exposed after the demolition of an adjacent one. The back having no windows, or architectural detail, was quite barren. This is how they overcame the issue...

    Can you see the whimsey of this buildings paint job?

    Nice catch. I went to grad school at Brown from 80-85 and I was always amused by what RISD did, not to mention how hard they worked. I remember then throwing a TV set off a high building and trying to cover the event in as many ways a s possible.
