Every day RISD welcomes visitors from both near and far. Prospective students and families come to campus to learn more about our programs, studios and student life. Others come for exhibitions in our galleries and at the RISD Museum. We also host a range of lectures, films and performances throughout the year.
Whatever brings you to campus, we invite you to connect with our creative community.
