“Mi Gente Siempre Responde” Public Art Banners Project

Healthcare workers and the essential workforce in Rhode Island represent a wide variety of cultures and ethnicities. And Latinx people are a big part of this essential workforce. Tony Méndez of radio station Poder 1110, artist Shey Rivera Ríos, poet Sussy Santana, and the City of Providence invite Latinx visual artists to celebrate and recognize the Latinx healthcare workers in Rhode Island, who are helping to manage the COVID-19 crisis.

Seven visual pieces by local Latinx artists have been selected to be turned into large public art banners. These banners will be installed in designated Providence neighborhoods, on important venues to the Latinx community.  Their art will also be part of a virtual exhibit and a bilingual community coloring book (Spanish + English).
Radio station Poder 1110 will interview the artists and the health workers who are featured in the artwork. Their stories will be featured in Poder 1110’s programming, and banner locations will be promoted in the radio station.

Door to door poetry tour of Providence, RI. Tour de poesía puerta a puerta en la ciudad de Providence

I'm doing a door to door poetry tour in Providence neighborhoods. The year 2020 has been extremely hard for so many of us, it is my intention to spread joy through poetry. In keeping with Covid 19 restrictions I will wear a mask and keep social distancing guidelines, dropping off poems at your door.
