Next, Tom Folk, Ph.D., AAA, ceramics historian and appraiser, will discuss problematic commissions at Rockefeller Center, including such figures as Diego Rivera; and, Georgia O’Keeffe. He will then focus on the ceramic artist Henry Varnum Poor, who had his own problems at Radio City.

In the afternoon, attendees will visit the nearby ceramics studio of Gary DiPasquale, noted contemporary ceramic artist, who will discuss his work, how ceramics are made and the current market.
