Ely Center of Contemporary Art is collaborating with Nasty Women Connecticut for the collaborating group exhibition Silence Breakers. Artists across disciplines will show artwork that addresses issues of abuse, consent, and identity as well as themes of domesticity and home. The show will look at the often-blurred line between security and insecurity in the home, providing room to explore ideas around gender, equity, sexuality, individuality, and domestic life.
Poetry of the Wild invites the public out for a walk to see their world anew through the keenly felt perspectives of poets and artists. Using a unique presentation of “poetry boxes” that combine art and poetry, the project serves as a catalyst for exploring our towns and considering how place informs mindfulness. The public becomes engaged by finding the boxes which are sited as a network on mapped trails, reading the poems, and responding in the public journals contained in each.
The Sidewalk Parade is an ongoing work of civically-engaged art, springing directly from the visions, talents, and motivations within a given community.
The inaugural Sidewalk Parade represents a collaboration between Newport Health Equity Zone and Salve Regina University. The parade will take place in the north end neighborhoods of Newport.
The Sidewalk Parade aims to empower community members by revealing and nurturing their inherent creative capacity as dreamers, designers, makers, and mobilizers. The training and experience in developing creative ideas, manufacturing artistic objects, and expressing community vision through the rich symbolism of a parade may empower all who are involved to organize creative, community projects in the future
"Nasty Woman" is a creative response to the attack on the solidarity of women's rights as well as the individual rights of people in society as a whole. This art exhibit is a national movement traveling across the country, and it is finally coming to Rhode Island this January!
