slides: The 25 Coolest People in Providence 2013
Monday, September 02, 2013
In the middle of the summer, what better challenge than to narrow down one of America's coolest cities to a Top 25 list of its coolest citizens? GoLocalProv sought nominations from every corner--from its contributors in every field from music to business, from arts to healthcare, from Providence "experts" who seem to know everyone, and from our staff's own engagement day in and day out with the news, politics, sports, business, health, food, lifestyle, beauty and fashion beats we report on.
What emerged was an incredible list that we whittled down by research, argument, and lots of thought. The result is an incredible and inspiring roster of women and men whose coolness is exhibited by the passion they bring to their life's work, a creative flair (and not just in the arts, but in the boardroom, the classroom, and even the courtroom), and perhaps above all, that certain special quality that just lights up a room when they enter it.
See how many you know, and of course, how many you wish you knew.
