Observe. Explore. Create.

The images above are hands-on Art/Science exhibits designed and constructed by RIMOSA. As a "museum without walls", we borrow the sites of others to host our exhibits and programs over periods of time from hours to months. The pictures above were taken of our exhibits installed at locations from Rhode Island Public Libraries to Slater Mill’s Gallery to Waterfire to 171 Main Street, Pawtucket. Although we anticipate eventually having a permanent location, we enjoy the exposure RIMOSA exhibits and programs gain from “popping-up” all over Rhode Island!
