Design The Night At RISD Museum

(7.18) Here’s something different and it’s free. Head over to Chace Plaza and the RISD Museum for Design the Night, an evening filled with mind-bending installations, quirky art-making, and treats from local makers. And music!

On the Chace Plaza, watch the sparks fly as artists demonstrate metalsmithing techniques on the Steel Yard’s mobile blacksmithing trailer. Grab a specialty cocktail from The East End, locally sourced food from Rhody Roots, or a cool treat from Millie’s, while you groove to the sounds of Nova One with Roz Raskin and friends.

Step inside to immerse yourself in a space about representation⁠—or the lack thereof⁠—as Jess Brown re-envisions the Grand Gallery. Take part in a haunting storytelling game with Janaya Kizzie and the ritual art collective We Gather, and find a new creative voice with a hands-on encounter for the whole family led by Hernan Jourdan. Join a participatory experience designed by artist Andrew Oesch and members of the 2019 Summer Teen Intensive program, and take a peek behind the scenes with Site Specific and Ed Wojcik Architect Ltd.

Free, 5pm to 9pm, Thursday, July 18, RISD Museum, 20 North Main Street, (directions)
