Art Connection-RI Welcomes Adrienne Wooster as Program Manager
A message from Adrienne:
Hello, everyone! I am so thrilled to be taking-up the position of Administrative and Program Manager at Art Connection RI. I believe that art is a powerful means for healing and serves as a point of connection for our individual lived-experiences — enabling us to broach difficult subjects, provide comfort, have insights, and acknowledge each other with more empathy. I greatly look forward to working with the artists and organizations in our community to give others the experience of art.
In addition to now working for Art Connection, I am the Executive Assistant at The Collaborative in Warren, RI. I am also a writer and artist, working primarily in multimedia and collage. I look forward to bringing my experience in non-profit work, administration, and advocacy to this wonderful organization.
OUR VISION IS A WORLD WHERE ALL PEOPLE GET TO EXPERIENCE THE POWER OF ART.
Regardless of socio-economic background, all people should have access to original art in their daily lives, and we continue to shift traditional ideas of who can display and experience fine art. Through our work of placing donated artworks by local artists in non-profit organizations, we dream of the day that every service agency will have original art transforming their public spaces. Over the past nine years, artists have been able to gain opportunities to increase their community reach, and view us as a valuable philanthropic partner.
Our Mission is to connect lives with art by connecting local artists to some of the most vulnerable populations in our state. Through that connection we aim to achieve sustainable improvements in their quality of life. With your support, on what used to be bare walls at health clinics, child protection agencies, and shelters, there can be beautiful artwork to help make some of life’s most difficult moments easier to bear for thousands of our neighbors.
Students at West End Community Center jump at the chance to pick artwork for their building.
