Spring Teacher Workshop

Join us for a teacher workshop inspired by this year’s Recognition of Art by Women (RAW) exhibition on Rose B. Simpson: Journeys of Clay

Get to know the work of an artist who is a member of the Santa Clara Pueblo in New Mexico and comes from an approximated 70 generations of matrilineal ceramicists. Discover how Rose B. Simpson uses clay from her homeland, organic found materials and mechanical hardware to create mixed media sculptures. Engage and reflect on essential themes discussed through this exhibition’s artworks, such as:

  • Womanhood, family, gender roles and identity
  • Generational trauma and the effects of colonization
  • Protection and empowerment through symbolism
  • Clay art as an emotional outlet

After touring Rose B. Simpson: Journeys of Clay with a museum educator, create your own sculptural clay mask in the Museum’s studio, guided by the Miami-based artist Carolina Cueva.
