To fulfill an interest in providing a range of work, the Museum will feature the exhibition Minyao (peoples’ pottery): The Art of the Everyday. Renowned American ceramic artists John Stephenson, Marie Woo and Susan Stephenson, supported by a grant from the Asian Cultural Council-Rockefeller Foundation, traveled frequently to mainland China on a mission to research and document the kilns and pottery of numerous remote villages. It is the Museum’s distinct privilege to exhibit the ceramic work they discovered. The collection of work on view is the result of their concerted effort to honor and preserve a powerful, disappearing ceramic language of the Chinese people.
