Artist/Rebel/Dandy “Design The Night” Celebration
The Museum marks the final days of this sumptuous show with a free Design the Night celebration on Thursday, August 15, 5-9 pm. Photographer Corey Grayhorse, local gourmet food trucks, a dandy film, and activities for all ages are on tap, enticing visitors to dine, drink, and dip into creative endings—and possibly new beginnings. Self-proclaimed “Black country soul rocksteady music group” Boo City wraps up the night with a special concert on the Chace Center Plaza.
Artist/Rebel/Dandy features myriad manifestations of the dandy’s style and persona, from the discreet sophistication and consummate elegance of Beau Brummell (1778–1840) to the romantics and revolutionaries of today. Seen here is a suit, circa 1968, worn by Richard Merkin (painter, illustrator, RISD faculty member).
Free, 5pm to 9pm, Thursday, August 15, “Design the Night,” RISD Museum, Chace Center Plaza, 20 North Main Street
