Indian Chief, restored.
Armory Hall, in the heart of the Town of Warren’s Historic Waterfront Historic District, was built in 1842 and has been the center of civic, social, military and cultural activities and events now for over 175 years. Restoration of Armory hall has been ongoing now for ten years uncovering many historic surprises including unique 19th-century wall paintings of Indians and Warren Artillery Company soldiers.

Beach Scape with Wind Breaks by Richard V Simpson 1963
Please Join Us on Art Night, June 28th 6-9pm as The Historic Warren Armory hosts an exhibit to celebrate and honor the life and artwork of the late Richard V Simpson, Rhode Island native, historian, writer and artist who passed July 4, 2017.
Richard had returned to painting, which he’d begun in the late 1950’s, with a renewed sense of purpose in the last years of his life. He very much looked forward to sharing his work with the public again. Many were unaware of his deep love of art and knew him either as ‘the local historian’ or that he did an eclectic radio show through Roger Williams University, or maybe as the gentleman that was helping build the 4th of July parade float at the church. He was truly a man with many facets.
We hope you will come and take part in honoring Richard by celebrating the art he was rightfully so excited to share.
