Activating the entire first floor of a stately 19th-century mansion, RISD’s primary gallery for undergraduate student work features group exhibitions throughout the academic year. Students in all majors learn from the experience of preparing work for exhibition, helping to mount shows and engaging in conversations about their work and that of fellow students in the context of exhibitions open to the public.
An engaging series of ever-changing exhibitions
During fall semester and Wintersession, the gallery hosts a series of group exhibitions focused on student work from all 16 undergraduate majors. During spring semester the exhibition schedule is equally full, with a series of shows featuring work by seniors.
Relaxed and festive, Thursday evening exhibition openings at the gallery provide opportunities for members of the entire campus community to come together and share an interest in the work students in disparate departments are producing.
