The department of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs at the RISD Museum will be holding extended hours to accommodate conference participants interested in viewing works on paper from the collection. The collection comprises more than 25,000 works; nineteenth-century France numbers among its particular strengths in prints and drawings.
The study room will be open from 10 am until 1:30 pm on Friday, October 28.
During this time, conference participants are welcome either to drop in or by appointment.
The study room is accessible by going to the museum’s Chace Center entrance (20 North Main Street) and taking the elevator to the fourth floor.
Selected works are available online here.
Visitors are also welcome to contact Andrew W. Mellon Curatorial Fellow Britany Salsbury ([email protected]) with questions.
