Organized by the Newcomb Art Gallery and the Smithsonian Traveling Exhibition Service, Women, Art, and Social Change: The Newcomb Pottery Enterprise is the largest presentation of Newcomb arts and crafts in more than twenty-five years.
Works from various periods will examine the role that the enterprise played in promoting art for the betterment of women, and in turn, New Orleans’ business and cultural communities, still struggling from the effects of the Civil War. The exhibit will feature significant examples of the iconic pottery as well as lesser known textiles, metalwork, jewelry, bookbinding and historical artifacts.
A 360-page, full-color book has been published by Skira Rizzoli in conjunction with the exhibition. The exhibition will be on view through March 2014 after which it will tour nationally.
