RISD Limited Editions Shahzia Sikander MFA 95 PT/PR and Huma Bhabha 85 PR
RISD Limited Editions returns for Fall 2022

Featuring exclusive work by internationally acclaimed artists Shahzia Sikander MFA 95 PT/PR and Huma Bhabha 85 PR, this season's sale represents RISD Limited Editions' first collaboration with New York master printmakers Pace Prints. 

RISD Limited Editions offers the public a chance to purchase works by leading alumni artists while supporting student opportunities. Last year's launch raised over $50,000 for the Student Opportunity Fund, providing critical financial support to students as they push the limits of what is possible. We are excited to continue to build on last year's success and look forward to sharing this year's sale with our community.

Pace has produced limited-run signed and numbered offset lithographs to be sold through their website beginning November 28. Learn more about this year's sale through the link below.
