Arts and Culture Day offers variety of talents

April 14, 2011

Betty Anne WatersSeveral events took place at the Knight and Flanagan campuses for Arts and Culture Day on Thursday, April 14, as part of All College Week.

“We Talk About Architecture, Architecture Talks Back,” a panel discussion and related art exhibition, examined the Knight Campus megastructure, which was constructed in the Brutalist architectural style.  More than 20 artists from Rhode Island and beyond answered to an open call to react artistically to the structure.

Also that day, visitors to the Flanagan Campus Art Gallery could view the ceramic mosaics of Jess Regelson of Pawtucket.

Later that night, CCRI alumna Betty Anne Waters shared her incredible journey to free her wrongfully incarcerated brother – a story that was the basis for the recent movie “Conviction,” starring Hilary Swank.

That night and throughout the weekend, CCRI Players presented “Various Kinds of Truth: Five Student-Directed One-Act Plays” at the Flanagan Campus.
