Visiting the Frans Wildenhain exhibition of mid-century modern ceramics is well worth your time. Make the most of your trip by planning your visit to coincide with one of the many companion events scheduled in conjunction with “Wildenhain.”
From lectures on diverse subjects presented by nationally recognized experts to art pottery identification and appraisals, as well as exhibition book signings at Shop One, the complete schedule of September events has been posted on the Wildenhain website: http://www.rit.edu/cla/wild/events-schedule
“The Economics of the Arts” is the first lecture, presented by Dr. Roger McCain on September 11 at 3 p.m. in Carlson Auditorium. Two days later, “Crafting Modernism(s)” is the subject of Dr. Jonathan Clancy’s presentation beginning at 4 p.m., also in Carlson. Dr. Clancy is author of an essay appearing in the Wildenhain exhibition catalog.
Then, on September 20th, “The Life and Death of Objects” is the subject of Dr. Caro’s presentation that begins at 4 p.m. in Carlson Auditorium.
A reminder to off-campus visitors: now that classes are back in session, and students have returned, insisting on being taught, parking is a bit tighter than in August. Go to the RIT Visitor’s booth, obtain a parking pass and, to get to Bevier Gallery, drive to parking lot E or F and walk towards Booth Building. There is a large banner that says “Wildenhain” on the building. Walk through the “tunnel” and the door to the gallery is on your right.
