Newcomb Pottery Through the Years
- Curated byLaura Blereau
As part of their shared commitment to provide public access to the history and works of Newcomb Pottery, Newcomb Art Museum and Newcomb Institute have created a permanent exhibit space on the third floor of the new Commons building on Tulane’s uptown campus that is free and open to the public. Spanning more than 50 years, the display, Newcomb Pottery Through the Years, centers on the historical timeline of the Pottery and the shifting style through the decades and features over 70 rarely-displayed treasures from the permanent collection including Newcomb Pottery, textiles, jewelry, metal objects, bookbinding, and more. Accompanied by a free publication, The (Feminist) Origins of Newcomb Pottery, written by renowned art scholar Jenni Sorkin, a stop at this miniature exhibition is a must on your next visit to Tulane.
