NetWorks 2015 premieres in December

In 2008, a unique Rhode Island arts project launched through collaboration between Joseph Chazan, M.D. and Umberto Crenca, Artistic Director of AS220. "NetWorks" was created to document, celebrate, and foster the richly creative and diverse Rhode Island artistic community.

Each year since its launch, the project has created an archive of video and photographic profiles that are enriched by museum and gallery exhibits, catalogs, and panel discussions.

WSBE Rhode Island PBS is proud to present this year's video profiles of the artists as part of the station's commitment to making works of local artists more accessible to a wider community audience. NetWorks 2015, filmed by Richard Goulis, air in two parts on Sundays, December 20 and 27 at 6 p.m., as part of Rhode Island Stories.
