URI Feinstein Providence Campus Urban Arts and Culture Program Presents: Rhode Island Women of Distinction
The photographic portrait exhibit is created by Munir Mohammed and Erin X. Smithers, with biographical information gathered by Linda A’Vant Deishinni through a collaboration with the International Gallery for Heritage and Culture. The portrait exhibit features images of over 75 women from the area who make a difference in our community. Some of them are well known and involved in our government, profit and non-profit world. Others are individuals who have an impact and are role models in less public arenas, as volunteers in unpaid positions, but who create a better world through their efforts and contributions in the community and the home. The photographs will be accompanied by brief biographies describing each one, illustrating the impact one person can and does make on the community in Rhode Island. The project will be accompanied by a collection of images created by Central Falls High School students working with their art teacher, Deanna Camputaro, identifying and highlighting women who are their positive role models.
Free and open to the public!
