    From Storage to Studio: The Clay Studio Resident Artists Explore The Philadelphia Museum of Art Collection

    The Clay Studio

    • Saturday September 14th 2019 at 11:00am to Sunday November 17th 2019 at 6:00pm
    In this rare venture, a group of 14 current and former Resident Artists from The Clay Studio worked with 7 curators to explore the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s storage vaults. The results were eye-opening and inspiring, for both artists and curators.

    This unprecedented project allowed the artists to research the collections, explore storage, and choose an object to study and use as inspiration. Coinciding with the American Craft Council national conference in Philadelphia, the exhibition will present the artists' work at The Clay Studio alongside inspiration pieces from the collections of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

    The participating curators’ collections include East Asian Art, Dutch Ceramics, European Contemporary Design, European Decorative Arts before 1700, historic American Decorative Arts and Contemporary Craft. We are honored and excited to be working with this generous group of curators.

    Opening Reception + Panel Discussion: Saturday, September 21 | 4 - 6 pm
