    Flowers from Fire
    Ceramics and the International Art Nouveau
    June 07, 2020 — September 20, 2020

During the late 19th century, artistic rebellion against mass production took many forms. In the world of design, shapes reflecting nature and growth, experiments with techniques, and influences from non-European cultures led to the flowering of Art Nouveau. Focusing on ceramics and other objects from the United States and Europe, this exhibition explores the artists and innovations that led to a new international style.
