Super Bowls Exhibition at Morean Center for Clay

22 Jan 2021, Posted by Robin McGowan in ART Matters, Community, Events, News, Press Releases

January 9, 2021 at the Morean Center for Clay through February, 27 2021 

Functional art, occupying the space between fine art and the everyday, is the focus of the current exhibition on view at the Morean Center for Clay.  

Super Bowls features a multitude of shapes, sizes, uses and artistic composition, showcasing the vast array of what some may call a mundane form. Each Bowl is handcrafted by a studio member, student or Artist-in-Residence of the Morean Center for Clay and curated by Kodi Thompson.

Through the run of the Super Bowls Exhibition, the Morean Center for Clay will be collecting non-perishable items to distribute in the St. Petersburg area. With hunger on the rise, and continued economic uncertainty, the St. Petersburg area is in desperate need of support. Please drop off non-perishables at the Morean Center for Clay, Thursdays through Saturdays from January 9 through February 27. Items collected will be delivered to Metropolitan Ministries for local distribution. Please help turn these Super Bowls into SOUP bowls! 

Another exciting element to the Super Bowls Exhibition is a special piece of art created by Starlin Marlin in celebration of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers run this season. Bidding starts at $200, with proceeds supporting the Morean Arts Center’s year-round FREE educational and arts programming. Please visit @MoreanCenterforClay on Facebook to submit your bid,  

On view January 9 through February 27, 2021, the Morean Center for Clay is open and free to the public weekly, Thursday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.  

A donation is requested from visitors who chose to jump on a potter’s wheel and throw their own bowl. No experience is necessary as there will be staff and instructors available for tips and tricks to help participants create their best functional piece of art.
