RISD’s 2017 Graduate Thesis Exhibition presents an expansive range of fine art and design work by the 235 students completing master’s degrees at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) this spring. On view in the Rhode Island Convention Center’s 28,000-sf Hall A, the show gives graduate students the space to exhibit multiple pieces or large installations from a final body of thesis work. This represents two or three years of research, experimentation, critical thinking and production in one of RISD’s 16 graduate departments.
The exhibition is free and open to the public from 12–5 pm daily between May 25 and June 3, with an opening reception on May 24 from 6–8 pm. In conjunction with RISD Commencement on Saturday, June 3, the show is open from 10 am–6 pm.
