A year-long focus on the integral role clay has on New York art, architecture and design.

Clay at the Core: NY Art, Architecture, and Design

Clay has been driving the development of New York for centuries; it has been at the core of architecture, design, and industry like no other media and is still going strong today. While clay is in every museum’s holdings from the Nuseum of Natural History to the MET, it has only recently captured the audience of the fine art culture. CLAY AT THE CORE will focus on how clay has worked its way into every facet of New York and its current trend in fine art. Is there a New York aesthetic in clay? How has clay permeated New York life? What are the advantages and disadvantages to being an artist in New York?

After the symposium, all guests are invited to Clay Art Center to view NY, NY: Clay and to hear a gallery talk with curator, Judith Schwartz, PH.D.
