RHONDA ABEND
Nevada
Rhonda grew up in Carson City, Nevada, graduating from Carson High School in 1980.  With four sports-obsessed brothers, she was the black sheep of the family, drawn to the arts.  At a young age she
dabbled in drawing, crafts, photography, literature, graphic arts and was fascinated with classic films.

In 2014, Rhonda founded the Carson City Classic Cinema Club, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing quality, family-friendly classic film based entertainment to the community and to advocating for and supporting youth arts education.

Today, Rhonda continues as the Director of the Carson City Classic Cinema Club, continually seeking out new opportunities to take art projects to students and to sponsor students continuing their arts education, focusing on disadvantaged youngsters.  The Carson City Classic Cinema Club actively fosters relationships with other arts groups, such as Wired Wednesday Digital Arts Association, to expand these programs.
