There’s a great non-profit, Resources for Human Development, that believes that art “breaks the barriers between people with and without disabilities.” A friend of mine had been an art therapist at RHD-RI for years, and I still love going to their shows and concerts to see what fun and beautiful and interesting things their clients have created.
This month RHD-RI has been collaborating with The Drawing Room, a Providence venue founded by photographer and artist John Jacobson to “promote drawing locally, regionally and nationally in all its glorious forms.” Together RHD-RI and The Drawing Room created “Drawn Together by Chance: A Collaboration Featuring Modified Oblique Strategies.”
Moonie and I checked out their closing reception Thursday evening and loved the scribbles, sayings and drawings that covered every inch of the Drawing Room’s long white walls. Moonie even learned a few things.
Then he studied some of the art adorning the smaller, un-scribbled-on walls.
