The Steel Yard: Industrial Arts Center, Providence Rhode Island


-->


     Summer was coming to an end and once again it was time to make the pilgrimage to Providence, Rhode Island to move our son back into the RISD dorms. Just like last year we rented a Dodge Caravan and stuffed it to the roof with Wynn’s belongings. What we did differently than the year before was to leave a week earlier so as not to get stuck in Labor Day traffic. In addition, rather than book yet another drab hotel room we booked accommodations on Airbnb, which by the way, was founded by a RISD grad. We booked a loft at The Steel Yard, a non-profit, industrial arts school located on the 3.5 acre campus of what was formerly The Providence Iron and Steel Company founded in 1882.
