About the Special Installation

Forged from the land itself, contemporary ceramics reflect an intimate working relationship with the environment and centuries’ worth of artistic tradition. On display in the Parks Gallery as well as the Duttenhaver Case in the Autry’s lobby, GROUNDED: Contemporary Ceramics, Gifts of Dr. Loren G. Lipson will feature major examples of contemporary Native ceramics by Roxanne Swentzell (Santa Clara Pueblo), Richard Zane Smith (Wyandotte), Wallace Nez (Navajo), and Courtney Leonard (Shinnecock).
