Red Wing Arts is adding a second location to be focused on activating the history of clay and creating immersive arts experiences.
The new Red Wing Arts Clay & Creative Center will be located in the renowned Red Wing Pottery Salesroom building at 1920 Old West Main Street. Christy Dickinson has joined the staff as Special Initiatives Director to lead the Center. She says it’s an honor to be part of the re-birth of the clay in Red Wing.
Dickinson says the re-imagined Clay Center will showcase the diversity of clay art throughout the landmark salesroom with room for both retail sales and modern and contemporary exhibitions highlighting regional creatives.
Dickinson says the new Center will provide a community space for classes and workshops, including hands-on experiences, artist-led instruction and teaching.
Program and facility planning is underway and the organization looks to begin to activate the space by April with opportunities for community involvement before then.
