Art Connection Rhode Island
TAC-RI identifies artists willing to donate their art, shows a slide presentation of the artworks to qualified public and nonprofits, and allows them to choose art that has meaning for them. The works of art then become the property of the agencies. So far TAC-RI has placed 214 donated artworks at eight nonprofit agencies. Five other nonprofits are in the process of selecting art from TAC-RI.
