The Rhode Island Latino Artists Network is a RILA initiative where we seek to support, promote, and increase public awareness of the richness, beauty, and diversity of Latin American cultures and their roots. We do this by creating networking opportunities to stimulate artistic activities and cultural interaction among Latino artists.

The videos on this page were created during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown and were made possible through CARES Act funds distributed by RISCA and through a mini grant from the Rhode Island Expansion Arts Program (RIEAP), which is supported by a collaboration between Rhode Island Foundation, the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, and the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities. The funds are being used to encourage RILA's team of Latinx artists to continue their art practice during the COVID-19 quarantine.

Congratulations to Domingo Pablo Gutiérrez, who goes by the name Pablo for being selected as RILA's 1st Emerging Latinx Visual Arts Fellow.

Pablo was selected among a list of highly competitive Latinx applicants statewide. The Fellowship provides an award of $1,000 to emerging Latinx artists studying and residing in Rhode Island, a portion of which will go toward school tuition and/or summer courses. One of his selected pieces will made into a poster for an upcoming exhibition of his work at La Galería @RILA, which will be scheduled for Fall of 2022.
Pablo was born in Guatemala and moved to Providence, RI as a teenager. He is a trilingual student, native speaker of K'iche’, the Mayan language of Guatemala, and advanced in Spanish and English. Pablo is a Junior at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) with a major in illustration. Pablo states: "I’m fascinated to illustrate themes of personal life experience, memories, background, and often dreams by representing it symbolically, and or narratively. Since I was a child I have loved drawing with pencil and colored pencils which have become one of my favorite mediums to use in my artwork."
