TO KNOW THE FIRE: PUEBLO WOMEN POTTERS AND THE SHAPING OF HISTORY
Krannert Art Museum
500 E. Peabody Dr.
Champaign, Illinois 61820
This exhibition brings together a selection of earthenware vessels from the Pueblo communities of New Mexico and Arizona generously gifted to KAM by the late George Ogura. Taking its title from the words of Laguna Pueblo potter Gladys Paquin, recalling the precarious art of ground-firing pots with kindling and manure, To Know the Fire explores the history, sociality, and poetics of Pueblo vessels and their makers.
Krannert Art Museum is open Tuesday-Friday 10AM-4PM, and Thursday 10AM-8PM.
