Monday through Thursday in July and August from 2 to 4 pm
Learn about Mingqi—traditional Chinese “spirit utensils” in the shape of mythical beasts, graceful dancers, and everyday objects—and make your own! Get inspired by the mingqi on view in the exhibition Unearthed, or create your very own creatures using clay, molds, and other tools. This event is fun for all ages and free with gallery admission.
