A New Arts Space, Called Found, Heads for Capitol Hill / by sierra stinson

“It’s a malleable space,” says Soldi. One that reflects the neighborhood’s long-term and day-to-day mutations and different audiences. “Found is about finding space, a home in an increasingly difficult landscape.”

The Founders - Sierra Stinson (Vignettes, Out of Sight), Rafael Soldi (Strange Fire Collective), Serrah Russell (Vignettes, Violet Strays) & Jon Feinstein (Humble Arts Foundation)

"Stinson’s move to New York meant a temporary break for Vignettes, the longstanding series of one-night-only, influential art shows she curated and hosted in her Capitol Hill apartment. But beneath the surface, she and Russell, who cofounded the online gallery Violet Strays and joined Vignettes in 2015, were plotting Vignettes’ second act(s): a project with local publisher Gramma (a citywide project with an exhibition in the former Western Bridge space in May) and a space for their next curatorial venture." - Margo Vansynghel, City Arts Magazine
