All Over The Map
This exhibition explores the wanderings of ceramic artist Carolyn Ford taking into special consideration how experiencing places far from home often bring into better focus the meaning or meanings of "home." From March 3 through April 4, the Museum Object Spring 2023 seminar is pleased to host a selection of Ford's tondi (ceramic sgraffiti disks) in the William Johnston Building Gallery.
About The Exhibit
Ceramic is one of the oldest art forms. The media and processes of ceramics have been used for artistic, aesthetic, and practical purposes that bring the creator in close contact with the world's physical content and the viewer their surrounding context. Ford combines clay and sgraffito to, similarly, bring together her home and adventures abroad.
About The Course
Taught by Dr. Carey E. Fee, the Museum Object course is the culmination of the Museum Studies minor for undergraduates at Florida State University. Museum Object examines the history, philosophy, practice, and implications of acquiring, researching, and displaying objects in art museums and gallery spaces today. Additionally, the course provides students with hands-on experience in designing, installing, and programming a show in a gallery setting.
