Raise a Glass

Join us to celebrate the opening of ‘Raise a Glass—A Contemporary Response to Animal-Shaped Vessels from the Ancient World,’ an exhibition at the Harvard Ceramics Program that is inspired by the Harvard Art Museums’ current special exhibition,
‘Animal-Shaped Vessels from the Ancient World: Feasting with Gods, Heroes, and Kings.’

On view from October 13 through November 26, 2018, Raise a Glass features contemporary ceramic artists responding to the elaborate vessels featured in the Animal-Shaped Vessels exhibition. Fourteen internationally recognized contemporary sculptors and vessel makers were invited to seek inspiration in subject matter, form, function and/or culture of origin from these ancient vessels, which illustrate how shapes, artistic forms, ideas, and traditions have exchanged across borders throughout time.

Exhibition Dates: October 13 – November 26, 2018
Opening Reception and Public Demonstration:
Saturday, October 13th, 2018 from 4pm – 7pm
Ceramics Program, Office for the Arts at Harvard
224 Western Ave, Allston, Massachusetts 02134
