Peace/War, Survival/Extinction: An Artist’s Plea for Sanity
Artwork of Richard Notkin
On view Fri., Mar. 11 – Mon., May 30, 2011
For the first time the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) is coming to the Tampa/St. Petersburg area. The conference dates are Mar. 30 – Apr. 2, 2011.
This annual conference for ceramic artists is held in a different city each year. The event draws 5,000 - 7,000 clay enthusiasts – many of whom will have cars they’ll use to visit the Florida Holocaust Museum and other venues across the region. NCECA has also hired buses to transport conference attendees to many museums, attractions and special events which will take place on both sides of Tampa Bay.
The Florida Holocaust Museum is proud to present an outstanding exhibition in support of NCECA. The exhibition’s focus is to provide social commentary on war, human rights violations and genocide, and to encourage dialogue about the avoidance of conflict. Richard Notkin’s tile murals, teapots, sculpture and installations will be included in the exhibition.
