City Hall turns into art gallery

February 7, 2012

WOONSOCKET — Some say there’s just no room for analytic cubism in local government, but don’t tell the kids at Beacon Charter School for the Arts.
Their abstract works of art, along with more traditional landscapes and self-portraits, have turned the corridors of City Hall into gallery space.
The latest joint venture between the city’s growing arts crowd and Mayor Leo T. Fontaine’s administration is designed to showcase the work of student artists from Beacon and give everyday folks who pass through City Hall an opportunity to sample the exceptional expertise of these emerging artists.
