Cocktails & Clay
August 12, 2011 @ 7:00 PM - 11:00 PM
Enjoy 45-minute clay-making sessions in the Art Center’s School and Studio where teaching artists will show you how to play with clay. Plus, enjoy our live DJ, drink special at our cash bar sponsored by Chant Restaurant, and our six galleries of contemporary art. This month, we’re joined by curators from the Oriental Institute, whose new exhibit Before the Pyramids: the Origins of Ancient Egyptian Civilizations, showcases pottery and vessels from ancient Egypt. Our teaching artist will show you how to build vessels similar to those featured in the exhibit, and Special Exhibits Coordinator Emily Teeter will be on hand with reproductions of items from the show.
