Today Wednesday March 15 we meet at 10 am in the Chace lobby of the RISD Museum entrance off of South Main Street (right inside where the RISD Museum store is.) We go as a group to the fourth floor to Prints, Drawings and Photographs Department.

We meet with Associate Curator Emily Peters who will show us a selection of drawings. She is leaving to become the Curator of Prints and Drawings at the Cleveland Museum of Art in one week. Please feel free to ask questions about the drawings she shows us; it is your time to see special drawings close-up and at-hand and to learn about the makers and how and why they were made.

Please visit Draw/Boston during the next three weeks.

Compare and contrast two pieces from the exhibition that interest you.
Examine media, intentions, content, scale, color, and impact and include a short bio of the artist. Email me the comparison. Be ready to discuss the pieces in our next group setting. I am unable to organize a group trip, but there are train, bus, and driving options for you. Several of you have already seen the show and it has been meaningful.

Wednesdays: 12:00pm – 8:00pm
DRAW/Boston brings together the private sketches of nearly four dozen artists from around the world in an exhibition that provides a revealing look into both the drawing process and the artists’ innermost thoughts. The exhibition includes an interactive and live-action mural – Demonstration Drawings – by Rirkrit Tiravanija that will reflect some of the most pressing political topics of our time.
This exhibition was organized by Tomas Vu for The Inside/Out Museum in Beijing, China.
