Exhibit to make the most of American art

September 26, 2013 by  

The exhibit ‘Making it in America’ is taking place at the Rhode Island School of Design’s (RISD) Museum of Art in Providence from October to February of next year.

Over 100 pieces have been gathered from the Museum’s galleries, storage vaults, and period rooms. They will represent American paintings, sculptures, and decorative items, such as furniture from the 1700s to the 1900s. Artists like John Singleton Copley, George Bellows, and Thomas Cole are represented in the exhibit.

Several previews will be held of the exhibit, including one for the press on October 8, members on October 10 from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm, and for the general public on October 10 from 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm.

The museum attracts visitors from all over the area, including Johnston, and this exhibit should be no exception. It is likely that local printing companies will be providing products such as invitations to the press and museum members, as well as flyers to be distributed throughout Rhode Island.

‘Making it in America’ will be showing at the Chace Center Galleries of the RISD Museum of Art from October 11, 2013 to February 9, 2014. Admission to the museum is $12 for adults, $10 for seniors, $5 for college students, $3 for those aged 5-18, and free for members, staff, faculty and students of RISD. The exhibit is included in the price.

The museum is open from Tuesday through Sunday from 10:00 am – 5:00 am, with a later closing time on Thursdays. For more information, call 401-454-6500.
