In conjunction with The Clay Studio’s Center-supported project, Making Place Matter, the Studio will host a series of four “Clay & Conversation” workshops, led by artists Roberto Lugo and Jennie Shanker. The sessions will include community art activities and conversations to gather input around the theme of place. The community’s reflections will lay the foundation for the artwork proposals that Lugo and Shanker will create for the subsequent exhibition, Making Place Matter, the inaugural project in the organization’s new facility in Philadelphia’s South Kensington neighborhood.

The four sessions will take place at the following locations:

  • May 5, 2–5 p.m. at Norris Square Neighborhood Project, 2141 N. Howard St.
  • May 26, 1–3 p.m. at The InLiquid Gallery (Crane Arts Building), 1400 N. American St.
  • June 21, 4–6 p.m. at Taller Puertorriqueño, 2600 N. 5th St.
  • June 30, 1–5 p.m. at Al-Aqsa Islamic Society, 1501 N. Germantown Ave.
