Posted

A native of Mexico, Marta V. Martínez is the founder and Executive Director of Rhode Island Latino Arts, which just opened the state’s only Latino arts gallery, La Galería del Pueblo (The Village Gallery). “RILA promotes and preserves Latino arts, cultures, history and heritage in Rhode Island,” Marta says. “La Galeria has been a dream of mine for 10 years.” The gallery showcases visual arts, poetry, music and more, and is a community center for events, and a place for everyone to learn about Latino culture. “I’m proud of this organization and the impact it has made on the arts scene in Rhode Island.”
