The Everson Museum of Art’s internationally recognized ceramics collection includes some of the finest representations of modern and contemporary American ceramics in the United States. With comprehensive collections and archival holdings central to the history of American ceramics, the Everson is focused on becoming the country’s leading center for ceramics research and exhibitions.
A generous grant from the Henry Luce Foundation supported the museum’s recently completed effort to photograph and digitize a significant portion of the collection and archive. The new publicly accessible and searchable database offers artists, collectors, curators, scholars, and students the previously unavailable opportunity to engage directly with this valuable chapter in American art history. This critical preservation project is part of the Everson’s larger effort to reinstall the ceramics collection in a newly renovated space and to create a world class Ceramics Research Center.
