About RISD Museum

The RISD Museum–southeastern New England's only comprehensive art museum–was established in Providence in 1877, alongside the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). The museum's collection of more than 100,000 objects includes paintings, sculpture, decorative arts, costume, furniture, and other works of art and design from all over the world, from ancient times to the latest in contemporary art.
