Lowell Art Studio Visit with Yary Livan (11:45 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.)
Tuesday, September 24, 2019, 11:45 AM until 5:30 PM
Lowell Art Studio
Let’s take the commuter rail to Lowell this time to visit the studio and working outdoor kiln of Cambodian Ceramicist & 2015 NEA National Heritage Fellow, Yary Livan. A ceramist and teacher, Livan has a legacy of dedication to his craft and his community. He is one of perhaps only three Cambodian master ceramists to have survived the 1975 Khmer Rouge genocide and the only one known to be living in the U.S., where he shares his artistic knowledge with the next generation through classes and apprenticeships. In 2012, Livan partnered with fellow master ceramist Kang Proeung to build a wood-fired kiln, using space provided by Lowell National Historic Park in a partnership with Middlesex Community College. After our studio visit, we will head over to the Cambodian Wood Firing Kiln and help Livan unload the kiln. Meet at North Station at 11:45 a.m. for the 12:12 p.m. train. Return on the 4:44 p.m. train. BHV members only: $20 for taxi transportation. Pay individually for $10.00 R/T senior commuter rail tickets.
