Women, Art & Social Change: The Newcomb Pottery Enterprise

Stark Museum of Art

September 20, 2014 through January 3, 2015

In 1895, Newcomb Pottery was established in New Orleans as part artist collective, part social experiment and part business. (The "social experiment" part involved teaching Southern women self-reliance by way of education, and helping them gain financial independence through the sale of their wares.) This collection, from the Newcomb Art Gallery at Tulane University in New Orleans, includes pottery, metalwork, bookbinding and textiles. If you've ever enjoyed an episode of Antiques Roadshow, this exhibit is for you.
