(6.3) Don’t forget to check out the RISD Grad Show at the RI Convention Center. The event website is a vertiginous funhouse ride with a wildly kinetic design that makes it almost impossible to use. Sooooo as far as I can tell, the show is open today on the holiday from noon to 5pm. You may want to double-check. And I did find this info.
RISD’s 2017 Graduate Thesis Exhibition presents an expansive range of fine art and design work by the 235 students completing master’s degrees at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) this spring. On view in the Rhode Island Convention Center’s 28,000-sf Hall A, the show gives graduate students the space to exhibit multiple pieces or large installations from a final body of thesis work. This represents two or three years of research, experimentation, critical thinking and production in one of RISD’s 16 graduate departments.
Seen here is the work of participating student, Bobby Anspach. This particular piece may not be part of the show.
Free and open to the public, RISD Grad Show, through June 3, RI Convention Center, Exhibition Hall A, One Sabin Street, (directions)
