The spring/summer issue of RISD XYZ is reaching most alumni and other readers this week. 

Focused on various interpretations of the notion of freedom, it features Martine Gutierrez 12 PR on the cover—as Tlazolteaotl ‘Eater of Filth,’ just one of the Aztec Demons she created for a solo show called Indigenous Woman, which is also the focus of one of the feature stories.

Throughout the magazine you’ll find stories about members of the RISD community who show through their work and choices in life what creative freedom means to them. 

In one piece, Jaime Wolfond 13 FD talks about changing course with his startup to give him the freedom to design again, while in another octogenarian painter Maurice Burns 72 PT (above) explains how he has always put freedom in the studio above all else.
