Protected: Shape the Future of Greenwich House Pottery
Campaign Goal…$3.5 Million by June 2023
A Modest Modernization
The Pottery envisions a modest modernization that restores the building’s architectural character and overhauls the floor plan, making way for an elevator, a new classroom, more storage space, and the return of the outdoor garden.
With the addition of state-of-the-art equipment, firings will become faster and more consistent. The improved layout will make the space more accessible to individuals with disabilities, improve the working conditions for staff, and make more classes available for current students.
In addition to benefiting artists and students, these improvements will also reduce the environmental footprint, making the Pottery an energy-efficient and responsible neighbor.
