The Rhode Island College Foundation's permanent artwork collection consists of over 500 paintings, sculptures, photographs, and works on paper. With strengths in mid-twentieth century modernist printmaking and New England landscape painting, the collection is varied in medium, geographic origin, and subject matter.

A major component of the collection is a gift of 166 works by Andy Warhol from the Andy Warhol Foundation. This includes 7 silk screen prints, 51 gelatin silver prints, and 108 Polaroid photographs.

To view highlights from the collection, visit the Digital Commons at RIC website.
