"Mugathon" Ceramic Cup Sale Takes Place Dec. 9 and 10

The ceramics program at the Kent State University School of Art, in conjunction with Ceramics Club, will host a unique, two-day cup sale on Dec. 9 and 10. The sale will take place from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. on both days in the Kent Student Center.

All works for sale will be products of the Nov. 13-14 “Mugathon,” a marathon creative event where participating artists make ceramic mugs for a continuous 24-hour period. “Mugathon” contributors will include Kent State students and alumni, along with other local artists and ceramics enthusiasts. The “Mugathon” began at 5 p.m. on Nov. 13 in the ceramics studio of the Center for the Visual Arts on the Kent Campus.

Proceeds from the December cup sale will help cover travel expenses for Ceramics Club members attending the National Council for Education on the Ceramic Arts annual conference, to take place March 2016 in Kansas City, Missouri.
