PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — The work of a Lincoln artist is being featured on the cover of this year’s budget proposal from Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee.
The painting of Pawtucket’s Slater Mill on the cover of the fiscal year 2014 budget released Wednesday night is by Peter Campbell. The graduate of the Vesper George School of Art in Boston says the landscape and history of the Blackstone Valley are a source of inspiration.
The state budget office and the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts collaborate each year on cover art for the budget.
Randall Rosenbaum, executive director of the arts council, said art helps humanize the document and makes it more ‘‘welcoming’’ to the public.
Last year’s budget featured a Pawtucket photographer’s autumn scene of Roger Williams Park in Providence.
