What teams of divergent talents are coming together to solve a problem beautifully while simultaneously making a difference in our community? How might we push our creative capacity in order to redefine the boundaries of our reach?

Crafting Community

February 28 – March 28, 2014

Crafting Community is a juried exhibition of secondary student ceramic artwork derived from community-themed curricula. This unique exhibition explores how making material objects through ceramic processes can nurture investigations, conversations and complex understandings of issues and themes that emerge from local communities. The culminating exhibition represents the collaborative efforts of UWM art education and ceramics faculty, local K-12 art educators, and their students who have maintained strong relations with our programs as alumni and partners.
