Rhode Island, the Creative Capital has many hidden gems, particularly their inhabitants. Often the people you pass on the street who look unassuming are powerhouse artists who have made Rhode Island their home. And lucky for us! But what happens when you don't know how to access these incredible talents? How do you meet them and support their work?
Holly Gaboriault's brainchild, the Rhode Island Art Archive Project makes finding these talented folks easier than ever. She and her film crew have been spending countless hours visiting artists, and documenting the exchanges on video. I highly recommend checking out the RI Art Archive Project's Blog to meet brilliant artists living in the state, smartly called "In The Studio". The premiere is coming this October 2013. I am overwhelmed with excitement around this event and will post more information as we near the opening.
