Inaugural "Encounter" Sunday, October 4, 2015Up close & Personal with Steven SylvesterBorn in Detroit, Michigan in 1954, Steven Sylvester found himself mesmerized as a youngster with the various public art forms and museums in the city. Sylvester was also captivated by the city’s rich and vibrantly different cultures. As an adult, Sylvester’s artistic creations demonstrate his passion for the uncommon. Steven Sylvester has developed clay art expressions that include: the Ladies’ Dress Series, which includes life-size wearable clay art couture pieces worn by models. A second expression embraces large-scale, public and private, site-specific, architectural ceramic works of art. The third embraces his leadership skills and passion for combining the arts with the needs of a community. Sylvester created a relationship skills-building clay art program titled: Help Me Build a Home of My Own, involving children in the foster care system.
