Take Care

Take Care is curated by RISD Museum staff members of the Climate Emergency Sustainability (CES) Task Force. Prints, photographs, paintings, decorative arts, clothing, and objects of cultural heritage from the museum’s collection examine themes of local and global sustainability, materials and repair, biodiversity, oceans and pollution, deforestation, Indigenous kinship to the land, and resource extraction. Take Care is a call to action for stewardship of the land, the oceans, the earth, and each other.

Created in January 2021, the CES Task Force includes staff from throughout the museum. We have spent the past year and a half studying the museum’s carbon footprint; researching ethical, economical, and sustainable business partnerships; and identifying best practices for sustainability and climate justice. We support and help implement measurable actions in our work and educate about climate issues both inside and outside the museum.
