Celebrating the Foundation staff
By Connie Grosch / September 20, 2016 /   Loading Disqus...

Jessica David, our VP of Strategy and Community Investment, first got the idea when she saw the Pop-art staff portraits on the MojoTech website. "Let's do this," she said. "What a fun way to show the people and personalities that help make the Rhode Island Foundation what it is."

 

Over the course of two weeks, I coaxed each Foundation staff member into my little photo studio, hoping that each would reveal to me something of who he or she really is – something that may not be revealed by an 'official' headshot for a staff directory on the website.

The folks at POPteam applied their custom pop-art techniques – taking their inspiration from the iconic screen-printed images with which Andy Warhol established his reputation as a Pop artist in the early 1960s. Each image is then printed on canvas and stretched over a frame.

Take a look the next time you visit us. BTW, some of the Foundation staffers will be using the portraits on their personal social media sites.
