THE GREAT RACE
February 2 – March 7
From the website: clayartcenter.org
Clay Art Center will be using its exhibition space to understand and celebrate cultural heritage; they will be telling the story of the Great Race – a short story narrating the travels of the 12 Chinese zodiac animals to the Jade Emperor to solidify their place in the calendar. Each artist has chosen one animal of the zodiac to represent in clay – their own unique history shapes their contemporary interpretation. While the story of the Great Race will be outlined throughout the gallery, each artist will provide information as to why they chose each animal and how it is relevant to contemporary culture.
Participating Artists: Jennifer Ling Datchuk, Ayumi Horie, Sin-Ying Ho, Adam Chau, Patti Warishina, Steven Lee, Hatsumi Suyama, Kenjiro Kitade, Vipoo Srivilasa, Sunkoo Yuh, Kyungmin Park, Kensuke Yamada, and Adriel Tong.
