2012 RISD Graduate Thesis Show

Posted in News, RISD with tags , , , on May 31, 2012 by ccovert

If you are in the Providence area, stop by the Rhode Island Convention Center, Exhibit Hall A to see the 2012 RISD Graduate Thesis Show.  You will have to hurry, as the show is only open through June 2 (12-5pm).

I want to highlight one student’s work, Francisco Moreno (MFA Paint 12).  In the past year he has been exploring dazzle in his paintings and installations.  For more images, click here.

Congratulations to all of our grads!

Dazzle prints for sale

Posted in RISD with tags , , , on January 7, 2010 by ccovert

We are offering ten of our dazzle plans as high quality archival prints. They are available online, through risd|works (under “Fine Art”). International orders please call risd|works at 401-277-4949.

The library plans to release an edition of ten plans (five sets of starboard and port sides) annually. This year’s edition is selections from Type 1 and Type 2 representing Tankers and Standard Steel ships. Proceeds benefit the Fleet Library at RISD’s special collections and exhibitions. The dazzle collection is housed in special collections and the funds raised will help preserve this collection.

The prints are the size of the original plans (10 or 14 by 34). All of the Type 2s are 14 inches high and all of the Type 1s are 10 inches high.

Maurice L  Freedman, RISD Alumnus, was the district camoufleur in Florida during World War I.  After the war he attended RISD and donated the dazzle plans and photos.  He was born in New York in 1898 and died in Massachusetts in 1983.  We don’t know much about Maurice.  Hoping someone knows more.
