The Shooting of Michael Brown by Evan Smith 
Sculptural work by Clayworks' resident artist BEN FREUND will be featured in the Solo Gallery. Freund's work explores the sciences through the lens of the archeological.  Elements uses the forms of ancient artifacts as a contemplation of what cultures choose to immortalize.  Whereas these forms would have originally been used to commemorate the deeds of gods and kings, he uses them to preserve the foundations of math and science.
