Erie Art Museum 411 State STreet, Erie, Pa 16501. (NOC's Own) "Kristen Cliffel: Stories We Tell." Opening 7-10 pm. Ceramic sculptor Kristen Cliffel’s whimsical works explore “Domestic Mythologies.” She is fascinated by the complex relationships we develop with one another and our sense of “home” as we grow up in modern America. Facing ever-changing roles as daughter, sister, wife and mother, she creates sculptures that reference what we find comforting, familiar and desirable, while questioning the presumption of “happily ever after” and beyond.
