RISD Student Exhibition At Chace Center

Vernacular Spectacular — where art meets life and you are on display — features work by RISD students, grad and undergrad, who invite you to take a second look at the everyday objects in your life. Curated by Cem Eskinazi (MFA GD ’17) and Drew Litowitz (MFA GD ’17).

Every product you pull off the shelf, all of the things you see on tv, each website you click through, every building you pass, and even the desk you sit at each day comes prepackaged with its own narrative. . .

Vernacular Spectacular™ promises you a chance to see your constructed realities fresh, unpacked, and like never before.

Go see what the kids are getting up to these days. Seen here is ‘Falling’ an inkjet print by Brian Hicks.

Admission to the RISD Museum is free on Sundays.

Gelman Gallery hours: Tuesday through Sunday, 10am to 5pm. Take the elevator to the 2nd floor.

Through January 29, Gelman Gallery, 2nd floor Chace Center, RISD Museum, 20 North Main Street, (directions)

  1. For exhibits you sometimes must enter the Gelman Gallery from its own outside entrance located up the big flight of stairs leading to a concrete covered sitting plaza. Gelman opens onto this plaza.
