Curatorial Project: Together Exhibition

I was one of the recipients of the Connecticut Artists Respond Grant Program supported by the Connecticut Office of the Arts.

The Connecticut Office of the Arts recognizes that artists help through challenging times and is committed to investing in artists' ability to provide respite through inspiration, connection, and education. The Connecticut Artists Respond Grant Program provided funding to artists and teaching artists to support the creation and presentation of free and accessible on-line arts-based experiences, learning opportunities, and services to audiences across Connecticut - and beyond - using the World Wide Web.

I created an open call for artists for a virtual exhibition titled Together, and the selected artists were invited to participate in a workshop.

Virtual Exhibition

September 3 to October 1, 2020

Curated by Nadia Martinez

During these past months, we have experienced the power of coming together and staying together while staying apart. The artwork selected for this exhibition express in different ways unity, connection, integration, and togetherness.

Sometimes it’s a collaboration
Sometimes it’s is a tribute to someone you admire or care for
Sometimes it’s a necessity
Sometimes is something that we see and make us think of unity and togetherness
Sometimes are the circumstances
Sometimes are the connections we make
Sometimes is a wish
Sometimes it’s so much more.

The Exhibition is made possible with the support of the Department of Economic and Community Development/Connecticut Office of the Arts.
Acknowledging COA Support
