For my project I am doing a short documentary on the art coordinator of the Art Corner Toledo Rachel Richardson. I am exploring this avenue of who she is and how she not only impacts the city of city -specifically the uptown and downtown Toledo – and how the city impacts her. While there are more “mainstream” artist that may capture the attention of the audience that I could have interviewed I choose to do someone more low-key specifically Rachel Richardson is because this project is just as much about the city as it is the artist. So I needed an artist who is local and connected to the city whereas you couldn’t get from a celebrity artist who all live in NYC and where not born or raised there.
While Rachel does not produce art works her role in the art community is just as significant I my desire is to highlight that role.
