Artist Ball

Artist Ball students in crayon costumes

The Artist Ball is our annual costume dance party and a showcase of RISD students’ exceptional creativity. Each year students vote on a theme, create skillfully made costumes and walk the runway as part of a festive costume competition.

Filled with dancing, great food, a photo booth, prizes and fun for the more than 1,000 undergrad and grad students who attend each year, the ball is a signature RISD tradition you won’t want to miss.
