Puebloan Vessels at the University of Iowa


Simple. Elegant. Useful. This pottery exhibit closed a month ago. What you missed was an excellent collection of native pottery from the American Southwest. The pieces were on display at Old Capitol in Iowa City, Iowa. Curated by UI anthropology professor Margaret Beck, the exhibit focused on how communities used different types of vessels in everyday life. The featured pottery is from the ethnographic collections of the University of Iowa Museum of Natural History and Museum of Art.
