Krannert Art Museum is opening two new exhibitions on January 27th

Krannert Art Museum is now taking reservations for timed entry to the museum this spring, and at the end of the month there will be two new exhibitions to explore.

To Know the Fire: Pueblo Women Potters and the Shaping of History

This exhibition brings together a selection of earthenware vessels from the Pueblo communities of New Mexico and Arizona generously gifted to KAM by the late George Ogura. Taking its title from the words of Laguna Pueblo potter Gladys Paquin, recalling the precarious art of ground-firing pots with kindling and manure, To Know the Fire explores the history, sociality, and poetics of Pueblo vessels and their makers.

Sacred/Supernatural: Religion, Myth, and Magic in European Prints, 1450-1900

Sacred/Supernatural explores some of the methods European printmakers—including Rembrandt van Rijn and Albrecht Dürer — used to convey extraordinary events and individuals in intaglio and relief prints from 1450 to 1900. The exhibition includes works by Dutch, English, Flemish, French, German, Italian, and Scottish printmakers.
