This special evening also celebrates The Gamm’s first season in its new Warwick home.
“Steve has been a patron and supporter of The Gamm and a champion of interdisciplinary artists for decades. For years Steve has been an unsung hero of our artistic community and it is an honor for us to celebrate his quiet dedication to the culture of Rhode Island,” said Managing Director Oliver Dow in the release.
On The Gamm’s recent move to Warwick, Artistic Director Tony Estrella added in the release, “We are so excited to celebrate our first season in our terrific new home. We are four productions in and our artists and audiences have been blown away by the transformative power of the space, its comfort and accessibility. Moving to this welcoming community has put us at the center of the state and opened us up to many new patrons. We have much to be thankful for.”
