Connecting Lives With Art: The Art Connection
Art Connection Rhode Island is a nonprofit organization that seeks to enrich under-served communities by expanding public access to original works of art. Their art donation and placement program is like a “museum without borders” as it places the work of donor artists on the walls of community service organizations. In their new environments, the works of art stimulate dialogue, creativity, learning and healing. This exhibition showcases examples of these donated pieces created by Cathy Chin, Linda Clave, Tom Gleason, Richard Harrington, Wendy Ingram, David Kupferman, Norman Peterson, Toni Peterson, Maria Termini, Beverly Thomas, Denise Wall and Roberts VanDerMolen.
