Views of The Maker Place
For Making Place Matter, there will be a Maker Place, adjacent to the main gallery. Visitors will have the opportunity to respond through art making activities designed to connect their own ideas of place to the exhibition in The Maker Place. Our goal is to present art exhibitions that inspire transformative personal experiences for all of our audiences. Through the vision of artists Velarde, Hatch, and Said who each substantiate the importance of place to explore identity, Making Place Matter empowers visitors to use their creativity to examine their own connections to place and identity, as they also form a deeper connection to The Clay Studio in its new home. This meaningful exhibition provokes discussion, inspire art-making through responsive activities for audiences, and therefore promotes a sense of agency over the gallery space for visitors.
