I’m back from RISD‘s weekend by design extraordinaire packed full of events, good people, shopping, gatherings, music, and lots to do. I’ll post a bunch of pics after the jump!!
The Alumni Sale, full of goodies ranging from ceramics, furniture, paintings, clothing, jewelry, art, toys, and tons of other risd goodies.
Some iconic bags.
Cute dolls lots of kids gravitated towards!
The big ones have…well, holes!
A set of other dolls by Tiphoni.com. You have the cheeseburger, cheesecake, sheep, something, and various other creations!
Lovable hand-sized dolls by Jen Chang in the FAV department. Each have their own names…cute yeah.. $12. firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some ceramics and metal furniture.
Handmade scarves! Very soft!
Spread the love t-shirts…oOOooo yeah!
Some cute sweaters for ya kids!
A stop by the wonderful RISDWorks store.
Time to to hit up the huge Library opening! When I was at RISD, our library was tiny! The fleet center donated their entire bank building to risd which has become a huge library, new cafe, fancy dorms, and meeting spaces. I’m jealous, yes I am.. You can read tons more about this new construction which just opened up earlier this year here.
Yea, the new video rooms have bean bags!
A stop by the RISD museum!
Why is Art, Where is Art, When is Art!
An awesome exhibition of posters for the Wunderground Exhibition, there were 3 rooms full of amazing prints and posters.
This poster was used for the ID sr. show in 2000 fro what I recall.
Xerxes jammin in the museum late into the night! They were really loud but fun to have!
YAhhh ..this was some HUGE monster upon entrance into one really crazy exhibition room. It had wires connected to it letting it move around.
This Branch like object was projecting pulsating images above it, and pumpim mad beats through each branch which you could listen to. Really weird, but entertaining.
Wirebugs…yups this was a classic project by RISD freshmen….ahh, the good ole days!
The wonderful Waterfire dance…jazz, salsa, and plain good ole music! 3 roads are closed down for this dance event and all the buildings are lit up. Lots of fun!
Yup, the classic, warming, enchanting Waterfire event!
A new collaboration with Jenny Holzer during the waterfire! Pretty cool, though I wanted projections on every single building after this. The enchanting waterfire, projections by Holzer, mystical music throughout the canal, people, various glasses of wine, and other events…this was one amazing night!
Oooooo…. while sipping a glass of wine and slices of cheese.
Hitting up a classic Balls game..yup, I said Balls…RISD Balls! It’s our beloved basketball team wiht a great logo(2 basketballs going through the basket). This was an alum vs current balls, hence my friends and I screamed out “Go old balls!”. The mascot was not there and hopefully he was not kidnapped again…his name is Scrotie and I’ll let your mind figure out what he looks like. Other great RISD sports teams are: The Nads(hockey), The Sacs(soccer), and The Jugs(Womens soccer).
