The R.W.R. collaborative  is comprised of three Connecticut based Artists work in varied mediums including Light, new media and sculpture. This collaboration developed to bring these three artists together to challenge their creativity, take them out of their comfort zone by  highlighting how connected we all are.
Sarah Rohfling brings her expertise in light art to this installation, her ability to use tones, hues and shadows is second to none. Terrance Regan will provide a dynamic new media aspect to the exhibit, he is able to use various mediums in a manner that engages  and challenges viewer at the same time .   Brian Walters will add dimensionality to the project by using salvaged materials that will interconnect all three artist’s vision for this project.
Without giving too much detail to this installation the RWR collaborative will update and document this project as it evolves from the idea, build and launch. Details will be continuously updated via Facebook/Twitter and Instagram, please be sure to check in on a regular basis.
This installation will take place at the Grove, a co-working space located @ 760 Chapel St, New Haven, CT 06510
 It will be up from the beginning of May till the last week in June. R.W.R. would like to encourage passersby to stop and take notice of this one of a kind contemporary installation, absorb it – ponder it – be moved by it.
We would like to extend a big “thank you” to the staff at The Grove, especially Christina Kane who was instrumental in attaining the space for this project.
