Unpacking Form and Function: Ceramics

Thu, Jul 15, Noon (PDT)

Join Associate Curator of Collections Dr. Ann Poulson and a host of experts as we take a close look at some fine examples of the design and decorative arts in the Henry’s permanent collection. Each week an expert will present works of their choice from the collection, examining them from their unique perspective. A question and answer session and casual discussion, in which everyone is invited to participate, will follow each presentation.
