Atrium Gallery at One Capitol Hill
About the Gallery
The Atrium Gallery was developed by RISCA to exhibit the work of Rhode Island artists in the State Capitol Complex. It hosts exhibits on a rotating basis, in partnership with community artists and art organizations from across the state. The Atrium also showcases artwork from a variety of diverse groups from Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Native American community, among others.
State Latin American & Black Art Exhibits at the Atrium Gallery
In 2002, the Rhode Island Department of Administration, Human Resources Outreach & Diversity (HROD) Office partnered with the Rhode Island State Council On the Arts (RISCA) to bring recognition to the artistic talents of artists of color from around the state by showcasing their work in the Atrium Gallery at Capitol Hill. As a result of this collaboration, and through the support of the Office of the Governor, the first art exhibit was held during the month of October of that year featuring artists from the Latin American community, coordinated by Victor Mendoza, State Recruitment Officer.
