PROVIDENCE – The Rhode Island School of Design’s Museum of Art has added a work by American artist Lynda Benglis to its permanent collection, thanks to a donation by Bank of America.

“Pleiades” was featured in the fall retrospective of Benglis that the RISD Museum mounted in the fall of 2010 of her work from the 1960s up to the present day. The exhibition included more than 50 works of Benglis, who was called “one of the most compelling, fearless, jubilant and underrated American artists of the past 40 years” by Boston Globe art critic Sebastian Smee.

“We are delighted to provide such a meaningful and significant piece to the RISD Museum of Art, an institution which helps make Rhode Island a vital cultural and arts education hub,” said William F. Hatfield, Bank of America Rhode Island market president. “Bank of America recognizes that supporting arts organizations is critical to the financial, cultural and social health of our communities.”
