On this episode, I sat down with former RISD Museum Director John Smith. John served as director for 10 years and fundamentally altered the trajectory of the RISD Museum with major capital changes including the introduction of technology. We spoke about how the museum stays relevant to the RISD community, The repatriation of indigenous artifacts, and of course, the best-kept secrets in the RISD Museum.
