4 DEGREES OF SEPARATION
Clay Art Center will continue its highly successful yearly-themed focus and for its 2018 programing has chosen to consider the social connections made in our daily encounters - connections made on the job, within a community, among our friends, ourselves and even our relationship with diverse groups… people we have yet to meet and learn about. Titled 4 Degrees of Separation, we will feature four core exhibitions that examine how linked we are with each other and everything else in the world. The exhibits will focus on relationships from different vantage points on the intricacies of individualism, racial biases, national identity, our environment and how all of it is communicated and understood.
Committed to exhibiting emerging, mid-career, and established artists Clay Art Center will become a platform for the field to express ideas towards these potent topics. Concurrent educational programming will include poignant symposia, lectures and workshops for adults and youth. Click Here for a complete list of featured exhibitions and related programming.
