Join us in celebrating this year’s winners of Sitings—the RISD Museum’s annual, juried competition for site-specific works. Meet the selected student artists, learn about their inspirations and processes, and take a tour of their projects.

This year’s winning entires are Light Source Seeking Surface for Transparent Relationship by Nafis White and Garcia Sinclair (both RISD BFA 2015, Sculpture), and Back Door @ the Pendleton by Aaron Pexa (RISD MFA 2014, Glass). Providence artist and RISD alumnus Brian Chippendale juried this year’s competition.

Free Museum admission, all welcome. Enjoy complimentary refreshments, a cash bar, and tunes spun by a RISD student DJ.

Sitings is funded by the Artist’s Development Fund of the Rhode Island Foundation.
