Clay Throwdown!

With its financial and management problems behind it (we hope), BAM is launching an ambitious new show with a rooftop party tonight. The BAM Biennial: Clay Throwdown! exhibition will feature 34 Northwest artists, including about a dozen from our state, all pushing the boundaries of traditionally pottery. You’ll be able to meet some of the locals, like Yuki Nakamura and Arun Sharma, and perhaps dance with them, too. DJs Dr. Lehl & Port-a-Party will be spinning tunes before a guided tour inside. (The winners of two juried prizes worth $5,000 will also be announced.) Then head back to the roof for the cash bar and complimentary finger food; there, under the stars, things will get a little louder as the Hurricane Lanterns perform. BRIAN MILLER
