    Function, Form, and Fantasy

    Drawn from the collection of Dr. Robert and Deanna Harris Burger, this exhibition offers a unique look at the recent history of ceramics—from the 1960s to the present day—highlighting the diversity of styles and intense creativity of expression in the medium of clay. Function, Form, and Fantasy is divided into three sections that survey the historic roots of ceramics as craft and examine the artistic and technical experimentation, along with social commentary, that ceramicists have explored.
