Patiño named to association

Posted 6/20/14

Elena Calderón Patiño, the Rhode Island director of the community arts program at the R.I. State Council on the Arts, has been named to the board of directors for the National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures.

The association is the nation's only multidisciplinary Latino arts service organization. One of 16 directors, Patino was chosen for demonstrated ability, good judgment, expertise and commitment to Latino arts and culture.

"We are very pleased to welcome Elena to our board of directors," said María López De León, association executive director and board member. “[Her] ongoing engagement with community, cumulative experience with policy and proven arts leadership, as well as artistic practice, will bring valuable insight to [the association] and the field at large.”

Patiño, who lives in Providence, has dedicated many years to the promotion and advancement of art and culture as an artist, a designer and an art administrator. In her role as director for RISCA, she has advocated for artists of color and created partnerships with art museums, non-profit organizations, universities, and government institutions.

A visual artist, Patino also recently had a retrospective solo exhibit in Costa Rica. Her body of work was based on her interest in theology, philosophy, and science. She is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design.

Randall Rosenbaum, RISCA’s executive director, congratulated Patino on her appointment.

“RISCA has benefitted from Elena's work with diverse communities throughout our state, and [the association] will benefit from her involvement at a national level,” he said.
