Funerary Art and Monuments

The North Burial Ground and Swan Point Cemetery are two prominent Providence cemeteries exemplifying the artistic riches and tranquil settings to be found in historic cemeteries. Family memorials honoring the deceased reveal the evolution of a city’s culture and industry. Ronald Onorato, Ph.D., professor of art history and department chair of art and art history at the University of Rhode Island, is a published expert on historic cemeteries. Onorato shows us extraordinary museum-quality sculpture and architecture “hiding in plain sight” outdoors for all to see.
