Visiting Artist Lecture with Sharif Bey

5:30pm to 6:30pm

Location: 

Harvard Ed Portal, 224 Western Avenue, Allston, MA 02134

Presented by: Ceramics Program, Office for the Arts at Harvard

Location: Harvard Ed Portal, 224 Western Ave., Allston, Massachusetts 02134

After you have voted, join us in welcoming artist, author and educator Dr. Sharif Bey as he shares his body of work and the influences behind it.

For years I have struggled with the challenge of producing works that were ornate, colorful and made with the utmost care yet suitable for the kitchen of inner city families.  I felt an equal responsibility to the purpose my work served in the black community as well as the mainstream art/contemporary craft scene. The influence of my pots was never felt at the kitchen table to the extent that I hoped, but my current work seeks other alternatives of promoting thought and dialog. This series of work combines my interest in African, Indian, Pre-Columbian, Native American, and Modernist sculpture while still applying the rigid functional criteria I acquired as a potter.” (This quote is from Sharif Bey’s Artist’s Statement for his 2007 exhibit at the Hickory Museum of Art, Hickory, NC.)
