EARLY AMERICAN FACE JUGS

June 28 – December 31, 2019

The exhibit will contain approximately 70 jugs from the Meyer collection of early American stoneware face vessels and related period American ceramic objects, all dating from the mid 19th century to before 1950. These early face jugs, while rooted in utilitarian pottery, are an important form of artistic expression, with some of their makers known potters, many of them African Americans.

Sponsored in part by Dr. Jeffrey Pressman and Dr. Nancy Kollisch, and Mr. and Mrs. George H. Meyer.
