Happy 2013! It’s already an exciting start to a new year.
Our RI Chapter has the alumni exhibition RADIUS opening right around the corner, Jan. 31st. All submissions are due today, Jan.11th, by midnight. Another event, Some Day my Prints Will Come, is taking place on Feb. 13th to celebrate the month of love and to familiarize our alumni with printmaking, letterpress and the uber talented studio, Ladyfinger Letterpress ( Morgan Calderini ’07 PR and partner Arley-Rose Torsone). More details to come about that!
But I wanted to address a topic that always is asked, “How are we able to keep many of our events free/low cost and provide great things like raffles, tasty beverages, food and snacks?” Well, I’ll tell you-through great donations in-kind, sponsorships, partnerships with alumni and volunteerism. Yes, it’s really that easy. Actually, it takes a lot hard work, dedication and commitment. Below I’d like to take a moment to recognize all our vendors, sponsors and those companies who have generously donated to many of our events and help keep them free, our mouths fed and talking. If I’ve forgotten anyone or any company, please bring it to my attention ASAP!
