Location: uptown campus
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, including the recently acquired daffodil motif vase by Harriet Joor, as well as lesser known textiles, metalwork, jewelry, bookbinding and historical artifacts.
Women, Art, and Social Change: The Newcomb Pottery Enterprise will offer new insights into the Newcomb community—the philosophy, the friendships, the craftsmanship, and the women who made an enduring mark on American art and industry.
A 360-page, full-color book will be published by Skira Rizzoli in conjunction with the exhibition. Opening in conjunction with Tulane’s 2013 Homecoming & Family Weekend, the exhibition will be on view through March 2014 after which it will tour nationally to several prominent art institutions. For booking information, visit the Smithsonian Traveling Exhibition Service's website.
