National Endowment for the Arts Grant awarded to City of Providence for Cranston Street Armory

In an effort to support community arts programs and enhance the state’s creative and cultural assets, Rhode Island’s Congressional delegation today announced several cultural organizations in the State would share $1,084,500 in federal grants from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). These federal grants will help support both new and established art projects, including workshops, free performances, exhibitions, and arts education programs. $100,000 will be directed to the City of Providence for the Cranston Street Armory animated by art project led by the Department of Art, Culture + Tourism. DBVW Architects has been working on the phased restoration of the Cranston Street Armory for many years and is excited to be part of the City of Providence’s team for this project.
