During the pandemic, the importance of documenting what the students were going through upon graduation with their thesis show coupled with the the show's installation taking place between two locations for the first time in its history in such unprecedented times, the RISD Museum of Art and the Waterfire Arts Center. Aside from being the first time the show's installation has been documented on video, it highlighted the tireless efforts of the Director of Campus Exhibitions, Mark Moscone and the gallery installation team navigating this annual show in such precarious times.
