The Public's Radio reporter Luis Hernandez made a visit to T.F. Green International Airport but not to depart on a plane. His destination was our GREEN SPACE Gallery, a partnership with Rhode Island Airport Corporation. Once he arrived, he met up with the latest artists, Mandy Howe, Tiffany Mendez, Izzy Rodriguez, who will be exhibiting in the gallery.

As the artists assembled their exhibits, with travelers arriving and departing the airport, they talked with Hernandez about how the gallery brings visibility to their work with an ever-changing audience of local, national and international visitors.

Summit on Arts and Culture in Communities

The White House Domestic Policy Council and National Endowment for the Arts partnered for a first-of-its-kind national convening on Jan. 30 to explore how the arts cross sectors to contribute to the healing of our nation. The summit was historic in nature, with members of the president's cabinet participating in conversation and dialogue for the daylong event.


Attendees included leaders from many sectors such as government officials, policymakers, artists, arts advocates, academics, philanthropic program officers, labor, and community leaders. Rhode Island was represented by AC+T Director Joe Wilson Jr., artist organizer Shey Rivera Rios, and RISCA's Executive Director Lynne McCormack. Together, they discussed, considered, and shared ideas, policies, best practices, and action steps to better integrate and elevate the arts and humanities throughout our country.
