Graduate Open Studios

Graduate Open Studios
Sunday, April 25, 1:00-6:00 pm
Monday, April 26, 9:00 - 11:00 am
RISD Campus (see locations below)

Graduate Open Studios is a new event that is happening in conjunction with the Fine Arts Portfolio Review. It is being offered to graduate students and reviewers to provide an additional opportunity for students and reviewers to introduce themselves to each other, talk informally about student’s latest work and share information about their professional interests and focus.


Students who participate are required to have work in progress on view in their studio and to be prepared for brief conversations about their work and ways to follow-up with reviewers for possible future opportunities. Students should have copies of their resume or CV, business card and/or portfolio samples to leave with reviewers who they meet.

Open To
  • All RISD Graduate Students enrolled full-time in degree programs
  • Reviewers Attending the Fine Arts Portfolio Review
Registration is Required by April DATE for Students and Reviewers


IMPORTANT: If you have class at the time of Open Studios and/or the Fine Arts Portfolio Review and would like to participate in one or both events, you must speak with your faculty member and request time away from class to do so. Speak with your faculty in advance to avoid any difficulty and an unexcused absence from class.
