Art at the RISD Museum

Another facet of our September Rhode Island trip was time spent (though not enough) at the RISD Museum. Works of awe-inspiring art from ancient times to the contemporaries of the 20th and 21st centuries were on exhibit. Students, teachers, scholars, and visitors can get practically nose-to-nose with these pieces… to examine and admire. Here is a small sampling of what this museum has to offer.
