Clay, Fire and Containment: Recent Pottery Acquisitions at the Maxwell Museum of Anthropology
Start Date: 2/21/2014Start Time: 5:30 PM
End Date: 2/21/2014End Time: 7:30 PM

Event Description:
The exhibition opening begins with a "Gallery Talk" by Curator, David Atlee Phillips, followed by a reception at 6 pm.

The Maxwell has collected pottery since its inception in 1932, primarily focusing on the U.S. Southwest. With the help of donors, the expansion of the pottery collection has become global, supporting efforts to think and talk about the wider world from an anthropological perspective. The exhibition displays Chinese ceramic pieces, ranging from the Neolithic period (starting 10,000 B.C.) to contemporary times; contemporary pottery of sub-Saharan Africa; Remojadas figurines from the Gulf Coast of Mexico; and the local expression of the prehistoric Pueblo world -the Casas Grandes culture (between 1200 and 1450 C.E.) located in what is now Chihuahua Mexico.
