Unpacking “Funk You Too!” Humor and Irreverence in Ceramic Sculpture at the Museum of Arts & Design




“We need the funk, got to have that funk.”
– George Clinton (1975) 1

Funk is more than attitude. It’s about rhythm, finding the groove, and getting down. A musician locked in on a bass, tearing through a riff, gets down as people dance and gyrate to the pulsating beat of the music. Yeah, that’s the funk. Open the space up a little. Move and groove. Make it a little edgy.
