Dan has chosen New Urban Arts as this week’s charity. $200 from the sale of his artwork will be donated.

“Founded in 1997, New Urban Arts is a nationally-recognized community arts studio for high school students and emerging artists in Providence, Rhode Island. Our mission is to build a vital community that empowers young people as artists and leaders to develop a creative practice they can sustain throughout their lives.

Our free, year-round out-of-school programs promote sustained mentoring relationships between urban high school students and trained artist mentors—who, together, engage in youth leadership, risk taking, collaboration, and self-directed learning. We are grounded in the belief that in order to fulfill the promise of our democracy, all young people, no matter their place in society, should have the opportunity to become more creative and independent thinkers.”

Meet the Artist: Dan Wood

“Dan Wood is an artist, printer, and the founder of DWRI Letterpress in Providence, Rhode Island. After briefly studying history at McGill University in Montreal, he received a BFA in printmaking from the Rhode Island School of Design. He has been printing ever since, working for ten years as an offset press operator in commercial print shops up and down the East Coast, while making his own artwork using these same processes. He re-inaugurated his own shop as DWRI Letterpress in 2002, and works collaboratively providing letterpress printing services to other artists, designers, individuals, and businesses. A critic at the Rhode Island School of Design, his own work can be found in private and public collections including Wheaton College, The New York Public Library, and the RISD Museum of Art. He is deeply committed to using his voice and his work to advance the causes of social justice and community building, and to share the knowledge and possibilities of letterpress printing with as broad a population as possible.”
