Dedicated to our furry friends, Clay Art Center’s 2019 year-long focus will explore the animal kingdom and the rich source of inspiration they are for many contemporary artists. Four core exhibitions will examine how artists use anthropomorphism to convey messages about relationships, how we coexist with animals in the wild and in our homes, and the importance of preserving the animal kingdom to maintain the delicate balance of our shared ecosystem.
Learn more about our four core exhibitions and related programming in our blogpost.
