The State of Rhode Island Highway Beautification program features three murals by author and illustrator David Macaulay. They are located along I-95 in Greenwich, Providence, and Hopkinton. Macaulay published some of the most detailed books on architecture and how things work you can find in the children’s or young adult section of the library. Popular favorites include Cathedral, Castle, and The New Way Things Work. I remember seeing him at a special event and asking him to sign a copy of Cathedral. Autographed copies of his books are popular gifts.

If you click on TED, you can watch him give an excellent talk about a journey through Rome.

These three murals make up the third stop on our Rhode Island Trail!
