Join Rhode Island School of Design students Thursday at 6:30 p.m. for an “anti-salon” as student artist-scholars gather to feature their work and challenge the current “Intermission” exhibit on display in the Chase Center Galleries. “Intermission” features an informal array of European artwork from the early 12th century to the late 19th century. During this anti-salon, museum visitors are encouraged to enter the gallery to witness student additions to the exhibit and engage with students and their work — identifying not just what is featured but what is notably absent.
Improv on the Rocks
