Collaborate with Artist Dawline-Jane Oni-Eseleh
During shelter-in-place RAC is working with artists to build opportunities to make meaning of our experiences through art.
Dawline-Jane Oni-Eseleh is an artist (and Teaching Artist at RAC!) whose current work is focused primarily on the shifting urban landscape. Oni-Eseleh’s project with RAC aims to capture brief moments from people’s lives to create a physical record of our time apart.
She invites the Richmond community to share images with her via Instagram @disfordiletante which document some of the simple, candid moments of this time.
Oni-Eseleh says of her project, “My hope is to create a larger ‘snapshot’ of these times that goes beyond the news, to show how connected we still are in our day to day.”
