A scrapbook-like collection of images of works, installations, and process of Dearraindrop.
Dearraindrop is an artist collective based in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Dearraindrop incorporates diverse disciplines that work together to create multifaceted sculptures and installations. Part of the collective's operating philosophy is modeled on the idea that our greatest human capability is the ability to work together to achieve a greater goal. Dearraindrop's work incorporates painting, collage, video, large-scale, interactive installation pieces, and hand-fabricated musical instruments.
Joe Grillo and Laura Grant founded Dearraindrop in 1998 as a clothing line. The collective is composed of three artists: Joe Grillo, Laura Grant, and Billy Grant.
