Gallery Talk: A Tale of Two Vessels

Gallery Talk: A Tale of Two Vessels

Join curatorial assistant Casey Monahan Wednesday, Apr. 24 to explore how two 19th-century ceramic vessels tell different stories of the United States. One vessel is made by enslaved potter David Drake and shows both the artist’s agency and the lack of it. The other vessel is a presentation vase created for the U.S. centennial; it includes narrative imagery intended to evoke a shared American identity after the Civil War. Gallery talks are limited to 18 people. Registration is required and opens at 10am the day of the talk. Please meet in Calderwood Courtyard, in front of the digital screens between the shop and the admissions desk.
