Museum of Indian Arts & Culture debuts a traveling exhibition that features more than 100 historic and contemporary works in clay.

The project, Grounded in Clay: The Spirit of Pueblo Pottery is a unique exhibition curated by the Native American communities it represents. Organized by the School for Advanced Research, the Vilcek Foundation, opening at the Museum of Indian Arts & Culture, the exhibition offers a visionary understanding of Pueblo pots as vessels of community-based knowledge and personal experience, including 11 pieces from the Laboratory of Anthropology, part of the Museum of Indian Arts & Culture.
