14th Annual Everson Ceramic Arts Lecture: Sana Musasama

Join us for the 14th Annual Everson Ceramic Arts Lecture!

Sana Musasama received her BA in 1973 from the City College of New York and her MFA from Alfred University in 1988.

Musasama began traveling to explore and recover her identity and cultural place. Her love of clay served as the catalyst for her initial travels in West Africa, where she studied Mende pottery in Sierra Leone (1974-75).

Later, Musasama ventured to Japan, China, South America, and Cambodia, where she returns yearly to work with survivors of sex trafficking. Musasama’s work is informed by history, women’s studies, culture, and her travel journal, and her mission is to be a global citizen who experiences the world heart first.

The Annual Ceramic Arts Lecture is a co-presentation of Syracuse University College of Visual and Performing Arts, the Everson Museum of Art, and the Chronicles of American Ceramics Foundation.
