“Art is the soul of a people.” – Romare Beardon
In 2022, the RWCAP Foundation (“the Foundation”) is excited to launch a new art program designed to create opportunities for San Mateo County artists of all ages and abilities to showcase their artwork.
After a rigorous application and interview process, the Foundation selected an Art Advisory Group comprised of a diverse group of San Mateo County residents to implement their Arts Programming Plan. Congratulations to Skyline College Studio Art Tech, Ashley Asaro, on her selection to the Foundation’s Art Advisory Group! Other members of the Art Advisory Group include Fair Oaks Community Center Coordinator Ana Avendaño, Museum Art Preparator Dylan Roberts, Diversity and Inclusion Entrepreneur Irma Zoepf, and more.
Members of the Art Advisory Group select exhibition themes, conduct community outreach, and curate and host semi-annual art exhibitions.
The theme for each of the 2022 exhibitions will celebrate the community diversity.
The First Art Exhibition Theme of 2022 is:
Bridges to Understanding
CLOSES: December 20, 2021
