The Museum was founded on the belief that art, artists, and the institutions that support them play pivotal roles in promoting broad civic engagement and creating more open societies. This initiative offers our newest citizens the opportunity to be part of a creative community that shares art, design, culture, and ideas.

All youth and children aged 18 and under are invited to visit the RISD Museum free of admission fees.
