MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- They're beautiful pieces, handled with care, and put on display with an artistic eye.
"This is really exciting and it is unique. What you`re seeing is really behind the scenes. So this is like you get to go behind the curtain and see how the magic happens," said "Flow" Curator Linda Ganstrom.
Visitors at the Milwaukee Art Museum are able to watch the installation process of its newest exhibit "Flow."
"It`s about how sound flows, how air flows, how water flows, and some of these ceramicists have created site specific pieces in some cases that remind them of the flow of the museum," said Milwaukee Art Museum Public Relations Manager Kristin Settle.
"Flow" is put on by the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts, or NCECA.
This is one of several exhibits in the Greater Milwaukee Area for NCECA's annual conference March 19th - 22nd, which will attract thousands of artists.
"Ceramicists from across the nation are coming here to Milwaukee to celebrate their art, to celebrate their craft and to learn from each other," said Settle.
20 artists will be featured in "Flow,' with some pieces created specifically for the Milwaukee Art Museum.
"One of them is based on a sound wave in a sound bite from Mr. Calatrava himself when he was referring to the way that the museum sits on the water," said Settle.
As the artists work hard setting up their pieces, you have a chance to watch their art unfold before your eyes.
"If you want to see the real creative process this is where it is happening," said Ganstrom.
You can watch the installation process of "Flow" until February 23rd.
The exhibit officially opens on February 25th and runs through March 22nd.
