Parents' Weekend

Parents' Weekend

At RISD, Parents’ weekend is known as RISD by Design – three days full of openings, studio tours, a big outdoor art sale and opportunities to connect with students and the rest of the RISD community.

Plan to attend RISD by Design 2014 (October 10–12). A limited number of hotel rooms have been reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. Mention that you are attending RISD’s alumni reunion + parents’ weekend to receive discounted rates.

Full details of this year’s schedule are available at the RISD by Design site.
