New Partnership with RI Latino Arts Makes Great Connections for Teaching Artists

This 6 x6 experimented with a new addition to the format. As part of the six minute presentations,each of the 6 artist presenters created a canvas (12 x 12) that focused on the question “What is most on your mind right now?”  Artists could use the canvas however they wished—with visual, performing, or literary arts.  The themes ranged from the pain of the immigrant to the layers of culture within individuals.  The canvases will be on display at La Galleria del Pueblo.   The presenting artists made connections with educators and members of the RI healthcare community that will lead to collaborations in the schools and with the medical community. 

Presenting were:

Ana Areylis Cruz Cabrera      Poet, Author, Spoken Word Artist  & Songwriter.

Carolina Artentsen   Visual Artist/Painter

Marleny Luna            Actress, Spoken Word Poet,TV/radio Host
