Memorial Hall Galleries

several artworks installed inside RISD’s Memorial Gallery

Central to the Painting BFA and MFA programs, the galleries in Memorial Hall house exhibitions by visiting artists and curators, faculty and peers, letting students directly access works by artists at the forefront of contemporary practice.

Through related symposia, students engage with exhibitors about their work and on current issues in the field. The galleries also host one of Painting’s milestone events, the annual senior thesis exhibitions for BFA candidates.
