Chinese, Punch Bowl, 1785-1800. Gift of Mrs. Hope Brown Russell.

6:30 – 8 pm, Chace Center Galleries

What do objects from the past tell us about pressing issues that we face today? In this lively discussion, historians, makers, sociologists, and economists debate current issues relating to labor, the environment, globalization, and ethics through 19th century New England art and design. Daniel Cavicchi, RISD’s dean of liberal arts and professor of history, philosophy, and the social sciences, moderates.

Free with Museum admission; reservations requested.
