The RISD Alumni + Student Art Sales exist to showcase alumni and student work, provide a testing ground for entrepreneurial efforts and new work, and to offer the local community a chance to interact with RISD work and artists/designers on a personal level.

The RISD Alumni + Student Art Sales take place three times a year: May, October, and December. The spring and fall sales take place outdoors on Providence’s historic Benefit Street, while the December sale takes place in the Rhode Island Convention Center. All artists participating in the sales are RISD alumni or current RISD students selling original artwork including prints, photographs, apparel, ceramics, glass, textiles, and more!


See what our artists have been up to on our 

Facebook page and our Flickr page.

RISD alumni are welcome to apply to the RISD Alumni Sales, which occur in Providence, Rhode Island. Application dates are announced in December for the following year, and there is a separate application for each sale.
