Think and Drink at The RISD Museum
Join us for the last of the 2018 Think & Drink series of events with The RISD Museum where Art For The Church is the topic. In the Medieval and Renaissance eras, much of the art created was for use in churches. Maureen O'Brien, curator of painting and sculpture, will take you on a private tour of some of these works on view in our galleries. The Church was also involved in the making of wine, beer and liquor. Monks have been producing beer for 1,500 years, and in that time, they have revolutionized and perfected the beer-making process. Following the talk, we'll be on hand to walk you through five of the best Trappist ales made in monasteries around the world.
