Workshop: Ornamental Rocks

Smart Museum of Art
The University of Chicago
5550 S. Greenwood Avenue
Chicago, IL 60637
Directions

In the most basic of descriptions, a sculpture could be called an “ornamental rock.”

This fun, hands-on workshop explores multiple sculpture-making techniques using “rocks”—including marble and granite—and “ores”—including iron, aluminum, and copper. The program includes a tour of the special exhibition The Allure of Matter at the Smart Museum, with a focus on the stone and stainless-steel works by Zhan Wang.

FREE. Space and materials may be limited. Open to participants of all skill levels. Please register in advance.
