RISD Museum After Dark: College Night

risd museum after dark Sounds like a happening. . . a groovy happening. RISD Museum will host a night for college faculty and students throughout the region. Performances, talks, and art-making create opportunities to get to know the collections and each other. Free admission with college ID.

Artists will be scattered all over the place, with live music, hands-on art projects, screening of student films, and more. Jacob Richman and Bevin Kelley from the Brown Multimedia and Electronic Music Experiments program will blow your mind with their sound/movement installations. How about a discussion of portraiture in the ancient world? Or find your way to the Metcalf Auditorium for “The Locked Room” from 6:30pm to 8pm.

In 1969, a group of faculty at Saint Martins School of Art in London initiated an alternative to the convention of art education and quickly achieved notoriety. Dispensing with student evaluations or deadlines, and with limited verbal communication, the “A” Course has become legendary. Gareth Jones, RISD Foundations Professor, and Garth Evans, Head of Sculpture at the New York Studio School, discuss their roles conceiving, structuring, and realizing the program. A short film depicting the start of the “A” Course will be screened.

Wait, what? Full schedule and locations.

6pm to 10pm, Thursday, October 13, RISD Museum of Art, 20 North Main Street, also 224 Benefit Street (FB)
