SHOP VISIT: Second Life, Providence, RI
During our brief visit to Providence last week we got so into the idea behind RISD Second Life, a secondhand art supply store run by RISD students. Because who has leftover materials after finishing art school? Answer - every person ever!
The store is in downtown Providence and lets poor students and us, non-student cheapskates alike sift through a well organized selection of used/partially used art and design materials. Every art school should have one of these stores.
