Finally, last week, a RISD safety alarm box appeared on the east corner of the building. And, to reinforce the impression that RISD is here, the school's familiar logotype marked the entrance doors.
But what creativity is about to be expressed on Point St.? Since there are no easels or manikins visible, we rule out the illustration, painting and fashion departments. No machinery, so it's not furniture building or glass making. Nothing to indicate Architecture or Industrial Design. Best guess, judging by the few items visible in the picture above at right: something to do with sculpture.
RISD has released no information we could find. But the JDA will provide details if we hear anything. And, we hope, a new institution will become an active JDA member.
