Frans Wildenhain Midcentury Modern Ceramics
Exhibit Code: GOR-120
Zone: Field House
Location: Gordon Field House And Activities Center (GOR/024) - First Floor
Time: All Day
A sneak preview for a gallery exhibition that will feature primarily ceramic objects created by noted artist and professor Frans Wildenhain. View ceramics of usual and unusual forms, some functional and others quite clearly nonfunctional, some with glazes that seem the expected and others possessing strangely unfamiliar shapes and surfaces. Learn about mid-century modern design, material culture and decorative art and understand the business of art. Learn about the Bauhaus and find out how to visit (today!) the Bauhaus at our (RIT) house. Gain insight to two women who virtually single-handedly were responsible for bringing art to the RIT student and faculty experience at the turn of the 20th century and then mid-way through that century. Understand what Shop One was, Wildenhain's connection to it and why there's a place on campus with a similar name. Meet the exhibit's curator and share with him your memories of Frans, Shop One, the School for American Crafts and modern pottery.
