Morean Center for Clay Current Exhibition

Super Bowls

Opening January 9, 2021

Functional art, occupying the space between fine art and the everyday, is the focus of the upcoming exhibition 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.

With a small yet meaningful donation of $10, guests can jump on a wheel and throw a 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.

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.

 

Fill the Bowls with Non-perishables:

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-Saturdays from January 9 through February 27. Donations will be delivered to both Campbell Park Community Center and Metropolitan Ministries.
