RISD Museum Associates raised $150,000 at "A Day with Diane: A Woman Inspired," held on May 14 at the museum.
The day included a behind-the-scenes tour with curator Laurie Brewer, who shared selections from the museum's collection highlighting the groundbreaking work of designer Diane von Furstenberg. Afterward, the Museum Associates hosted a conversation with von Furstenberg and a luncheon.
Allison Dessel, Hannah Childs and Monica Boss were co-chairwomen for the event. The money raised will go toward the museum's education programs, restoration work and collections.
