Providence City Hall Galleries


The Main Gallery at Providence City Hall was created to showcase the work of local artists. It is open to the public during City Hall business hours: Monday to Friday, 8:30am to 4:30pm and is located on the second floor.

Offering space to artists and organizations that might not have a permanent gallery, the Main Gallery at City Hall exhibits an eclectic array of work that highlights the artistic and cultural diversity found in the Providence community.


Mayor Elorza's Community Gallery, in the Tax Collector's Office (Room 203), is a space within City Hall dedicated to Providence community groups and nonprofit organizations using arts and cultural programming as an expression of their core values.

Mayor Elorza's Community Gallery showcases artwork created as a way to deepen the public's understanding of important social issues and as expressions of community healing, and works created by students of all ages.


The City of Providence and Mayor Jorge O. Elorza have partnered with the Art League of Rhode Island (ALRI) to transform an administrative office area in Providence City Hall into a gallery space which showcases the work of ALRI elected members.

The gallery space, located outside of Mayor Elorza's office, is rotated on a bi-annual basis. Part of ALRI's mission is to provide a venue for the growth and encouragement of artists and to promote high standards in the visual arts.
