Free Docent Tour

Enjoy FREE admission every third Thursday from 5:00 – 8:00 pm, and on February 16 a docent tour of the new Ceramics Gallery and inaugural exhibition, "A Century of Collecting: 100 Years of Ceramics at the Everson."

The first exhibition in the Everson’s new ceramics gallery, A Century of Collecting, celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Museum’s first purchase of ceramics for the permanent collection in 1916. From that initial purchase of 32 works by distinguished Arts & Crafts potter Adelaide Alsop Robineau, the Everson has amassed a premier collection of more than 5,000 ceramic pieces, dating from ancient times to the present day. This exhibition presents a survey of works made by key figures in modern and contemporary studio ceramics, tracing the Everson’s role as a driving force in shaping attitudes about ceramics as a fine art medium.
