When was the last time your party hosts suggested attire? We aren’t talking black tie or snappy casual. The Northern Clay Center, in preparation for its 25th Anniversary Party on Saturday, June 25, which dovetails with its current “Florilegium” exhibition, really wants attendees to don their best botanically inspired or patterned attire. On its website, NCC has dedicated a page to “Plan your party attire” with a Pinterest board of suggestions. Alright, then!
Attendees are also invited to select, on June 24, a vase from the center to fill with a flower arrangement, which will be featured during the event. Sounds like blooms will be bursting out all over in fitting celebration of NCC’s long, fruitful and creative presence in the Twin Cities.
“Florilegium,” which is on view until June 26, ventures far behind the idea of floral decoration to explore how the mythological, symbolic and cultural significance of fruit and flowers, grass and vines, leaves and twigs can acquire contemporary resonance when fashioned into ceramics—representational and conceptual. Works by Joan Bruneau, Guy Michael Davis and Katie Parker, Rain Harris, Rebecca Hutchinson, Jae Won Lee, Kate Maury and Julie Moon create an inspired backdrop for the event. And a unique setting for festivities billed as “the party of the year!”
Tickets are $25 for the event and can be purchased here.
