Well Noted

Thursday, March 21, 2013 at 6:00pm

RISD Museum, Upper Farago Gallery 224 Benefit Street, Providence, RI

Join Museum Director John W. Smith and RISD Provost Rosanne Somerson in a conversation of how the everyday list — the most humble form of documentation — provides a peek into the personal motivations and decision-making processes of celebrated artists, ultimately providing firsthand accounts of our cultural history. Talk highlights works in Lists: To-dos, Illustrated Inventories, Collected Thoughts, and Other Artists’ Enumerations from the Smithsonian’s Archives of American Art. Free.
