Rhode Island School Of Design Museum Of Art - Review

Opened in 1887 this has become one of the the largest art museums in the United States. There are about a hundred thousand objects in the collection here, with a very diverse focus. The highlights of the collections include: Ancient art: Greek coins, paintings, sculpture; Roman jewelry and glass; a mummy from Egypt; a fragment from the temple complex at Karnak.

  • Asian art: 700 19th-century Japanese prints; the nine feet tall 12th-century wooden Buddha; a brilliant collection of Japanese textiles; Indian saris and Chinese ceremonial robes.
  • Contemporary Art: A mix of practically every kind of visual art (painting, sculpture, video) by the masters of the 20th and 21st centuries; and also a focus on the local art community.
  • Costumes and textiles: In addition to the Asian textiles there are Native American, Hawaiian, and miscellaneous European textiles.
  • Decorative arts: Metalwork, furniture, ceramics, wallpaper, and glassware covering a period of several centuries from various regions around the world.
  • Painting and sculpture: 2500 items covering Western art from the Middle Ages to the post-war period. They include many works by the masters through the ages. Prints, drawings, and photographs: 25000 items covering 500+ years.

The museum does much more than merely exhibit art. Keep track of its event calendar to know about musical concerts and dance performances.

  • Loved this place. A small but very well made museum with very accurate and detailed explanation. Special appraisal should be given to its textile collection. Don't miss it!

  • RISD is a treasure-trove of talent and shouldn't be missed on your next visit to Providence. The museum is amazing, but the highlights of RISD are the studios which buzz with massive talent!

  • Of course, it's one of the great design and art school;s in the world, but also fun and interesting to visit.

  • Unfair discriminatory hiring practices

  • The school is amazingly special and i wish to be there someday to improve my skills in graphic dsign.
