Celebrate Earth Day at the Museum by joining us in a free, family-friendly earth ball-making workshop inspired by the special exhibition RAW. A common guerilla gardening technique, participants will be invited to mix seed, clay, compost, and water into small earth balls (aka seed bombs), meant to be tossed to spread flowers around our city.

This workshop will be facilitated by local artist and placemaker, Gelareh Saadapajouh, who invites us to pause and re-discover our forgotten relationship to people and the land through multi-sensory exercises.

About the exhibition

In recent years, artists have begun exploring the medium of unfired clay in startlingly new and original ways. From sticky and wet to dry and powdery, raw clay has the power to transform its physical state while transmitting deep connections to primal themes like the land, sentience, the body, and memory. RAW features four new installations by leading artists working with unfired clay: Cassils, Magdolene Dykstra, Azza El Siddique, and Linda Swanson. Learn more
