Throughout my URI career, my focus was mainly in digital photography. I love creating images that advertise ideas and/or opinions. Besides actually creating art, I have a strong desire to educate the public on the importance of art and the influence it has on our day-to-day lives. I realized this desire during my treatment at Hasbro’s Children’s Hospital after being diagnosed with cancer during my senior year of High School. While undergoing chemotherapy, I was exposed to the healing power of art – art both displayed throughout Hasbro and art created in the comfort and security of the Tomorrow Fund Clinic.
I feel a gallery environment is a wonderful place to educate people on art the importance of art. Each show introduces new points of view, ideas, and opinions that viewers can ponder. One day I hope to be a conduit for artists to broadcast and showcase their art and positively affect the lives of the viewer.
I am so grateful and excited for this internship because it will be a wonderful platform to help me understand the behind-the scenes aspect of a gallery. Each skill gained from this experience will help me thrive in the gallery world with the intent to change lives through art and make a difference in the world.
