Opening late 2021

This new, long-term exhibition presents highlights from the more than 300 ceramic objects that the Everson acquired as purchase prizes from its famed Ceramic National exhibitions, which are the bedrock of the American Studio Ceramics Movement. This flexible display will tell the story of the Ceramic Nationals and showcase the rapid evolution of the field of ceramics during the four-decade run.
