Art of the Cup and Teapot Spotlight
Since 2008, the Ogden Museum has presented Art of the Cup, featuring two cups each by selected Southern ceramicists. For the third year, we are also welcoming artists to submit a teapot (which is not necessarily required to form a set with the cups entered) for our accompanying exhibit, Teapot Spotlight. Few objects span cultures, time periods, rituals, and daily uses like the teapot and cup.
Prominently installed on the third and fourth floors of the Ogden Museum, Art of the Cup and Teapot Spotlight was viewed by over 24,000 visitors last year, and is an annual favorite because the cups are for sale (available for pick-up or delivery upon exhibition closing.)
Art of the Cup and Teapot Spotlight opens on Thursday, September 1, 2016 and closes on Tuesday, December 6, 2016. We hope you will be a part of this year’s Art of the Cup and join us for an opening reception on Thursday, September 1 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. during our weekly live music series, Ogden After Hours.
