The PAWTUCKET GALLERY TOUR is a self-guided tour taking place on September 15, 2019 during the 21st Annual Pawtucket Arts Festival. The public is invited to visit ten local art galleries to view artwork in a variety of creative expressions and media, art that is historical as well as contemporary, international and regional.

Pawtucket, Rhode Island, once a thriving center for the textile industry, has evolved into a center for the arts. With the support of the City developers have transformed former textile mills into studios for artists, designers, media firms, and architects as well as performance spaces for dance, theatre, and music groups.
