Connection to Art
Providence, RI – Art. Rhode Island. The two seem to be joined at the proverbial hip. In fact, it's hard to imagine Rhode Island without its thriving, remarkably creative artistic community that does so much to enrich the Ocean State with its intimate galleries, inspiring public sculptures, and rich museums and educational venues. All of this means a great deal to Ana Flores, who has passionate beliefs about how Rhode Islanders can enhance their connection with the art that surrounds them.
Ana Flores is a Cuban-American sculptor, ecological designer, and writer, who lives in Charlestown, Rhode Island and Nova Scotia, Canada. Her sculptural work is shown internationally and throughout the United States. Flores also works with environmental groups and communities designing outdoor installations and parks that engage people with the human and natural histories of their local landscapes.
