Holly Ewald

Community Artist

Holly is a studio and community artist who works in a variety of media, including artist books, collage, monoprints, mail art and installation. Originally from Michigan she lived in Brooklyn for 15 years and moved to Pawtuxet Village, RI so her twin boys, could literally dig in the dirt. She was an artist in residence at New Urban Arts from 2002-03, loved the family feel of the place and initiated a mail art exchange between NUA artists and established artists in Rhode Island. Holly has been working with folklorist Michael Bell to develop hands-on community arts and humanities projects that can be seen at www.voicesandvisions.org. She is founder of the Urban Pond Procession, which celebrates and promotes stewardship of Providence ponds.
