Bay Area Clay is a legacy of hopefulness for our future. Whether artwork is expressing something beautiful in the human spirit, or the artwork is an expression of social criticism; the underlying idea is that artists are called to speak the truth. And, as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. stated, “speaking truth is ultimately a powerful weapon for change.”
