RISD Art Circle 2015-2016

The RISD Art Circle (RAC) is a group of young artists and art enthusiasts who explore the RISD Museum collection and activate the Museum galleries through events, interpretative projects, community collaborations, and hands-on learning activities, inspiring all of us to see the world in a creative way.

The 2015/16 RAC members are excited to create opportunities for other teens to discover connections through personal stories, artistic practice, and enjoyable experiences.
