University City Ceramics


One of the the most original art potteries of the American Arts and Crafts Movement, the Art Academy and Porcelain Works, was established in 1909 in University City, a St. Louis suburb. This exhibition was the culmination of years of research, led by the Museum, into a unique facet of St. Louis's artistic heritage. It included 50 outstanding objects, from museums and private collections as well as from the Saint Louis Art Museum's own collection, that illustrate the quality and diversity of ceramics made in University City from 1910 to 1914.
