ACHF Arts Access
To create a body of functional ceramic vessels that reconciles my appreciation for both historical Persian pottery and the Legacy of Warren Mackenzie in Minnesota. I will take an independent class with Mark Pharis and hold critique sessions with peers and members of the Persian community to expand my technical skills and develop a hybrid style of pottery. 2: To engage the community of Persian immigrants that rarely crosses paths with the art community of Minnesota and to establish a loyal relationship with a potential audience for my future projects. I will introduce the Persian community to NE Minneapolis art scene by holding regular interviews/open studio sessions to discuss and witness the relationship between art, people, and life.
A body of functional ceramic works. Four additional video projection and sculptures. An exhibition/ ceremonial event dedicated to communities involved in this project. Holding regular bi-weekly critique sessions helped her to solve the technical challenges. Northeast sculptor friends offered a great deal of support with construction questions and her ceramic professor gave her guidance. 2: The actual outcome matches exactly with the proposed outcome. After holding just a few invitational open studio events, through the word of mouth, more and more volunteers participated in the project and the project started to roll spontaneously based on community’s desire of interacting with one another.
