Boston, US.– An art exhibit opening in Westborough, Massachusetts, on Sunday is part of a unique cultural exchange. As "Art Without Rules" opens at the Tatnuck Bookseller, Westborough resident Ian Tink is working on bringing "Dominicanos," his photo exhibit, to the Dominican Republic.
According to westborough.patch.com, the Westboro Gallery is displaying "Dominicanos" from July 22 to Oct. 21. "Art Without Rules," sponsored by the Autonomous University of Santo Domingo, runs at Tatnuck from Sept. 23 to Oct. 22, with an opening reception from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday.Tink says he has done "a tremendous amount of photography in the Dominican Republic." Early this year, he was invited to be guest artist at "Art Without Rules" in Santo Domingo, he says. Concurrently, he was assembling "Dominicanos."
Both "Dominicanos" and "Art Without Rules" are offering specially painted shoeshine boxes for a US$500 donation. The proceeds will support an effort to provide education and training to shoeshine boys, who work on the streets of the Dominican Republic without this assistance, he says.
