RISD Museum Announces Chase Presenting Sponsorship
PROVIDENCE, RI, February 20, 2020— The RISD Museum today announces a new sponsorship of programing and events presented by Chase. With Chase’s support, the RISD Museum will be able to continue three critically important community programs, including free admission to visitors on Sunday, starting March 8th. Additionally, the RISD Museum will offer programming and free admission on the Third Thursday evening of each month starting in March, and its popular annual summer event, Design the Night in July.
Currently on view at the RISD Museum is a series of exhibitions called Raid the Icebox Now commemorating the 50th anniversary of its landmark show from 1970, Raid the Icebox I with Andy Warhol. On April 16-19, 2020 Chase will sponsor a weekend of activities that allows the community to engage with these eight artist-curated presentations of new work alongside pieces from the Museum’s permanent collection. The event begins with an evening party in the galleries on the Third Thursday, and the weekend continues with conversations with local artists, writers, scholars, and performers in the galleries. The celebrations culminate in a Super Art Sunday, a day of family-friendly activities designed for all ages to enjoy.
“Investing in our community is the backbone for how we do business, which is why this is a company that I take pride in working for,” said Patricia Gilman, Chase Market Director. “Arts education is vital to the fabric of Providence and the surrounding communities, and we hope more people will now be able to come out and enjoy all that the RISD Museum has to offer.”
