Here’s another idea for the RI sign.
On- and off-Island artists could be invited to submit “themed” ideas for painting on clear vinyl applied onto the RI initials. This could be done on a rotating basis, up for a few months each year. This would generate a lot of publicity for the Island, attract visitors, build traffic for the stores. It would also make beautiful collectible sculptures, etc., sold at the gift shop. There’s a lot of potential for those RI initials…just takes a little thought.
Unfortunately, this one is out of reach; it is a Miro.
