The RISD Museum’s first large survey of work from the greater-Providence region in more than 20 years, Locally Made expands across several Museum galleries with multiple components celebrating the rich and diverse talent in the city and nearby communities.

The Museum’s Upper Farago Gallery features recent acquisitions now in the collection created by local artists, video works selected guest curator Dina Deitsch (Contemporary Art Curator, deCordova Museum) are screened in the Spalter New Media Gallery. Lower Farago Gallery is transformed into a multifaceted programming space where invited artists, designers, performers, and other community members creatively curate, teach and experiment through a variety of participatory events.

At the center of Locally Made is an experimental space – One Room – where artists and designers lead and facilitate collaborative workshops, collective discussions, lectures and performances on a daily basis. One Room will offer participants a direct experience with how makers think and act.
