Mountain Pottery is pleased to announce a collaboration with Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum a Cannupa Hanska Luger Beadmaking workshop…”Something To Hold Onto.”

With “Something To Hold Onto” artist Cannupa Hanska Luger “aims to utilize social collaboration to re-humanize large and abstract data through the process of creating handmade objects.” In this case the data is the more than 7,209 migrant deaths while crossing the southwestern border of the United States over the past 20 years. In workshops at Mountain Pottery and across the country individuals will make clay beads to represent each of these lost lives. The clay beads will be incorporated in a monumental work of art by Cannupa Hanska Luger at the Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum in Mesa Arizona. http://www.cannupahanska.com/something-to-hold-onto

Tiffany Fairall, Chief Curator of the Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum will lead this amazing day of art and social awareness. Join us at Mountain Pottery to learn more about this important project and to make a bead to contribute to the installation. This event is free, everyone welcome.

Date: Saturday February 22, 2020 

Demonstration, discussion and beadmaking 10am-4pm

Creatively yours,

Helen Hixon & Jason Bogan
