see website for showtimes
More than 100 outstanding works of painting, sculpture, and decorative arts from the RISD Museum's collection illuminate connections between American ambitions and the making art in Making It in America. The exhibition's title is a double entendre: just as individual accounts of American life revolve around searches for freedom, fulfillment, and identity, these stories are also embedded in the creation of works that comprise the history of American art.
