Rhode Island State Pride By Derek Anderson, Joel Anderson, 2019
- Rhode Island State Pride
With an area of just 1,214 square miles, Rhode Island is the smallest state in the U.S. But that doesn’t mean that this little state doesn’t have much to be proud of. For example, Rhode Island kicked off the American Industrial Revolution in 1790 with the development and construction of Samuel Slater’s water-powered cotton mill in Pawtucket. Nathanael Greene, a decorated general from the Revolutionary War and the general responsible for defeating the British forces, was from Rhode Island. Inspired by the historical significance of a small state with a big impact, Anderson Design Group handcrafted vintage travel poster art of a Rhode Island lighthouse, a lighthouse that is still open to the public to this day. A fitting home decor item, conversation piece, or gift, this artwork is available as a canvas, art print, banner, metal sign, or framed postcard.
