AMOCA Night At The Movies

A Night at the Movies
Saturday, October 11th, 4-6pm

On Saturday, October 11th, the American Museum of Ceramic Art (AMOCA) will present The Village Potters of Onda. This fascinating 27 minute documentary film, created in the 1960’s, by artist Robert Sperry explores the production of the historic pottery making village of Onda, Japan before it was forever changed by machine production. This documentary, which has been re-released by AMOCA, was formerly only available film and is now available on DVD at the museum for $29.95. This event is free with admission and is in conjunction with our exhibition, Robert Sperry, Bright Abyss through November 8th. Refreshments will be served.

A full color 271 page book titled Robert Sperry, Bright Abyss covering the lifetime achievements of Sperry, published by AMOCA with text by Matthew Kangas will accompany this exhibition. Hard cover $69.50, soft cover $49.50.
