Arts slashed at University of Rhode Island

Tuesday the University of Rhode Island informed Judith Tolnick Champa, who runs the URI Fine Arts Center Galleries, and Roxana Tourigny, who runs the school's "Great Performances" program, that they would be laid off, effective July 4, and that the galleries and performance program would close. The decision was attributed to the state's – and in turn the Kingston university's – budget crisis.

Updates soon.

Oh no! This is horrible. Judith is a great curator and person.
