Heating clay to life, kilns are an essential in the ceramic making process. Join fellow UChicago students and Department of Visual Arts Teaching Artist Amber Ginsburg on a guided bus tour to explore the history and function of kilns on the South Side of Chicago.

Presented in conjunction with the Smart Museum of Art’s exhibition Ruth Duckworth: Life As A Unity, this is an opportunity to commune with local practitioners and learn about the diversity and nuance of ceramic practice from studio to studio.


FREE, open to UChicago students. Space is limited, please register in advance. Transportation and boxed lunches are provided for those who register and attend.

Co-presented by the Smart Museum of Art’s Feitler Center for Academic Inquiry and UChicago ArtsPass
