Design The Night At RISD Museum

(7.19) Interact with artists while snacking and sipping cocktails in one of RISD Museum’s most popular nights of the year — Design the Night. Providence’s own Arc Iris will be performing outside on Chace Plaza from 8pm to 9:30pm.

Seen here is Arc Iris front-goddess, Jocie Adams, who frequently jumps up on top of things. The trio comprises Adams on vocals (and several instruments), Zach Tenorio Miller on keys and sometimes keytar, and drummer Ray Belli. They have been touring widely, here and abroad — they spent the beginning of the year touring with Kimbra! These are three unbelievably talented and versatile musicians.

While the Sketchbook Project Mobile Library and Arc Iris will be taking over Chace Plaza outside the North Main Street entrance, there will be events and installations up on the Benefit Street side of the museum as well.

Grab a pencil and draw with Julia Rothman, watch Janice Lee Kelly’s aerial installation grow up the Museum’s Benefit Street façade, and experience pop-up shops, performances, and conversations with artists featured in the exhibition From the Loom of a Goddess.

Also on tap: RISD alum, and former Project Runway contestant, and designer of the infamous ‘Crazy Kitty Sweater,’ Joseph Aaron Segal brings his Pretty Snake collection to RISD Works.

Design the Night, free, 5pm to 9:30pm, Thursday, July 19, RISD Museum, 20 North Main Street, (directions)
