From the vaults of the School for Advanced Research’s Indian Arts Research Center, the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture and the Vilcek Foundation of New York, Grounded in Clay:  The Spirit of Pueblo Pottery is a Native American community–curated traveling exhibit developed to showcase the deep history and beauty of Pueblo pottery while bringing to life the complex narratives and stories of this essential art form.

Numbering roughly 100 pots, Grounded in Clay is one of the first significant traveling exhibitions of historic Pueblo pottery. This exhibit is curated by a 60-member group representing 21 tribal communities and draws from community-based knowledge and personal experience to elucidate meaning and understanding in Pueblo pottery. The exhibit will travel nationally in 2023.
