The Gordon School is continuing its "Coffee with Claire" series with a Zoom discussion with Sarah Blythe, interim director of the RISD Museum and parent of two Gordon graduates, and David Allyn, Gordon's 23rd Britt Nelson Visiting Author, about the relationship between artists, museums, and the communities that support them. The conversation is free and open to the public, with opportunities for questions from the audience.
Sarah joined the RISD Museum in 2009 as director of education, coming to Rhode Island from New York where she held positions at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art. At RISD, she collaborated with artists, students and scholars to realize exhibitions, programs and publications, while also critically investigating the complicated histories of museums, art pedagogy and interpretation practices in her own work. Her work included a number of collaborations with Gordon teachers and students, including a sixth grade lesson that produced work that was exhibited at the US Department of Education in Washington, DC.
David Allyn is a visual and performing artist whose work has rich connections to the Providence arts community. He earned an MFA in ceramics at RISD, after which he founded the ceramics studio at the Steel Yard, a nonprofit serving the sculpture and industrial arts community. He has been working with Gordon students since spring 2020 as the twenty-third Britt Nelson Visiting Artist, which was established in 1998 to support Gordon's commitment to hands-on art education by bringing professional artists to campus to work directly with students on extended lessons and projects.
"Coffee with Claire" is an ongoing Zoom series with Claire Phipps, Gordon's Chief Advancement and Experience Officer, which facilitates conversations with various members of the greater Gordon community.

About Gordon School:
The Gordon School, in East Providence, Rhode Island, was founded in 1910 as the state's only non-public coeducational school.

Learning takes place among a diverse population of students and teachers who reflect the many cultures within Rhode Island's community, ensuring that each student comes to truly appreciate the value of multiple perspectives. Educating children from nursery school through eighth grade, Gordon's goal is to graduate intellectual leaders, joyful learners, and empathic young people who will make a positive impact on the world.
