The mission of the Providence Brain Art Fair is to promote creative expression of the mind and brain through artistic representation and exploration. We hope to inspire the spirit of inquiry in children and adults by making the sciences accessible. Since 2010, the Rhode Island Museum of Science and Art (RIMOSA) has brought open-ended experiences of art and science to thousands of Rhode Island youth and adults at schools, camps, festivals and other places where curious people gather. RIMOSA’s engaging hands-on and open-ended exhibits and programs appeal to a wide variety of learning styles and emphasize the tools that both artists and scientists share; curiosity, observation, experimentation and communication.
Parking is available on Westminster Street, in the lot behind RIMOSA (accessible from Dean St in spots marked “RIMOSA”), and across the street near Classical High School.
