Nature and the sea are raw materials for Rhode Island artworks

Rhode Island calls itself the Ocean State and it makes good on that bit of braggadocio. Glorious views of surf, arcing bridges, rocky shores and cupcake islands are alive and vibrant, as are artists’ depictions of the surroundings. Rhode Island hosts serve this artwork up proudly at many lodgings, where guests, including children, are encouraged to explore the art and learn about how artists bright it into being from nature’s raw material on all sides. Feel free to ask questions; we love our artworks.

Art plays an important part in guests’ experience at this picture-perfect coastal resort

Ocean House resort on a bluff overlooking Block Island Sound is picture-perfect in more than its stunning beachfront location. This luxurious resort also puts art front and center, from the early New England artwork in its 49 guest rooms and 20 signature suites to its artisan-in-residence series where notable artists create and talk about their work. The resort’s collection includes almost 250 works from the 19th century through the 1990s on its walls, including Ludwig Bemelmans’ original “Madeline” illustrations and works by John Rea Neill and George Edwards, among many others. Guests can take self-guided audio tours of the collection, and there’s a self-guided scavenger hunt tour for children. Watercolor lessons and painting while wine-tasting sessions are also available.
