Ceramics have served an important role in the lives of humans for the past 30,000 years. From building shelters, to forming cookware and creating sacred objects, humans have long relied on clay to survive and thrive. Today, artists, architects, and scientists have continued to push the medium of clay to exquisite lengths. In this course, we’ll practice hand building, wheel-throwing, glazing, and more as we learn about contemporary and historical applications of ceramics!

EXHIBITION

More Than Shelter

MAIN GALLERY

The essentials for human survival are food, water, and shelter. These needs take precedence over all the others. Virginia MOCA continues our investigations of basic human needs with the new exhibition More Than Shelter. Eleven artists received an invitation to participate in this exhibition. We asked each one to consider what the idea of shelter means to them and choose an avenue of investigation. The artists connected with partners who provided unique insight into their area of expertise. Shelter is both a verb and a noun. It can mean a home, a community, or the people and places that makes us feel safe and welcomed. It also means to listen, care, and to support one another, our community, our land, our minds, our society, and our futures.
