Event description

Description

Join us for a lively and compelling exploration of the Arts & Crafts Movement and of Pewabic Pottery, Michigan’s oldest working pottery. Pewabic Pottery was co-founded in 1903 by Mary Chase Perry Stratton, an artist and innovator of iridescent glazes, and Horace James Caulkins. Examples of Pewabic Pottery can be found across the United States including at the Detroit Public Library, Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, the University of Michigan, and Washington D.C.

Thomas Walter Brunk, Ph.D., is one of the nation’s foremost scholars on the art and architecture of the Arts & Crafts Movement, with specialized expertise in Pewabic Pottery. He is the author of many books and articles and has curated numerous art collections.

This event is free and open to the public. Parking is available in our Putnam St. parking lot.
