5:40 Contemporary Tour
Olivia Bacon is a student entering senior year at the University of Rhode Island as an art history major. She is a volunteer with Gallery Night Providence and an intern at Gallery Z on Atwells Avenue.
Bacon says “I have been an art enthusiast my entire life and have visited countless museums and galleries both locally and internationally. I enjoy all types of art from different periods and movements.
My favorite works come from fin de siècle France, Czech Art Nouveau, and British Street Art. I find inspiration from all these works and apply them to the multiple facets of my life. In the future I hope to develop my skills working in museums and galleries and eventually become a curator at the Musée d’Orsay in Paris.”
