Collections in Conversation takes advantage of virtual exploration to bring together objects from the RISD Museum and other collections in the region. Selected pieces are closely viewed and compared with facilitation by educators from the RISD Museum and the collaborating institution. Historical and contextual information is shared in support of questions and observations.
For this session, the series will intersect with the Haffenreffer Museum’s Earth, Sea & Sky series:
Join the Haffenreffer Museum for a summer mini-series celebrating Indigenous relationships to the realms of Earth, Sea, and Sky. Learn about contemporary Native farming practices, attend a fish skin tanning demonstration, and explore the night sky through Indigenous lenses.
