A local sculpture club will bring back its founding summer tradition to Long Island City next weekend.

On Saturday, Aug. 19, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., SculptureCenter, located at 44-19 Purves St., will host a day of sculpting and creativity. Not only will members and artist participate in the clay creations, but the public will be able to join in the long-awaited revival of the tradition in a large-scale community sculpture studio.

Two thousand pounds of clay will be provided for anyone in the community to creatively mold for free use or in artist-led activities. The artists that will lead these projects include Christian Holstad, Joanna Malinowska, Kate Newby, Hayley Silverman and Ser Serpas, Agathe Snow, and Patrice Renee Washington.

This event is free to the public. Music and food will be available at the SculptureCenter building.

Founded by sculptor Dorothea Denslow in 1928, members of SculptureCenter (known at that time as Clay Club) would meet up at Staten Island to create sculptures out of natural clay.

For more information about Clay Club at SculptureCenter, call 718-361-1750 or visit www.sculpture-center.org.
