The brainchild of Westport-based Lisa Stretton, RaRa came to her, she said, after realizing what a struggle it is for most artists to be able to showcase their work to the public. Her goal with RaRa is to bridge the gap between artist and consumer. Shoppers can enter a location into a search bar and filter their search by type of art, color or theme to find exactly what they’re looking for. Once buyers find that perfect piece, they can contact the artist directly to see the art in person. Artist listings include a direct link to email the artist, links to the artist's personal website and social media accounts, as well as pictures, videos and artist biographies. RaRa is in it's prelaunch phase and is offering free membership throughout the coronavirus pandemic with the code RaRa2020 to all Cultural Alliance members, including student artists over the age of 18. See more
