9:11AM ON 01/20/2013
BY Daily Dose

Unknown Artists Free admission on Sunday at the RISD Museum of Art. Check out “RISD Business: Sassy Signs and Sculptures” by Alejandro Diaz (walk in the Benefit Street side)  — runs through June 9th.

Ranging from quaint stereotypes of Mexican identity to current socio-economic and art-world commentary, Alejandro Diaz’s text-based works and installations use language as a form of cultural critique and resistance. Conceptual and campy, his humor-infused politics and use of everyday materials are emblematic of his ongoing involvement with art as a form of entertainment, activism, public intervention, and free enterprise.

Admission is free every Sunday 10am to 5pm (and the third Thursday evening of each month from 5pm to 9 pm).

RISD Museum of Art, 224 Benefit Street, also 20 North Main Street, (directions)
