Your gift to Art Connection RI makes it possible for people in the most marginalized communities in Rhode Island to understand the healing power of art.


On November 2, 2017 Art Connection-RI completed the placement of 20 original works of art at Lucy’s Hearth, Middleton, RI.  After one month of enjoying the art, Program Director, Jennifer Barrera shares this story:

“We have a 13-year-old boy who is one of seven children living here with their Mother.  Mom is a recovering alcoholic.  He has been displaying some sullen and angry behavior as he becomes more aware of the situation and as he navigates through life, a new school and friends.  Just the other day I had the longest conversation with him about three abstract pieces [recently placed by Art Connection-RI] hanging in the hallway.  It was so nice to hear him talking about something other than his tragic story and it was a great way to understand how his brain works and to hear his opinion about the art." 

Please note: Your contribution will be used to safe-keep, handle, transport and install donated artworks to the highest standard of preparation.  We will apply your donation to wherever the need is greatest.
