Highlights of the collection begin around 1885 with American Beleek and run through the end of the twentieth century with the works of the Bronn artists. No museum in the world has as extensive a collection of these artists as the Museum of American Porcelain Art.
The collection also includes pieces by other important artists representing the history of porcelain art in American as well as artists furthering the art form today.
To put American porcelain in its historic context, the Museum’s collection also includes examples of porcelain from China, Europe and Great Britain. A highlight of the collection is sculpture also on display at the White House, Buckingham Palace, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Smithsonian and the Vatican.
The Museum of American Porcelain Art also encourages the development of the art form through an annual prize awarded to a select number of artists working in the ceramic medium. As part of the prestigious Arch Eagle award, prize-winning pieces are exhibited in the museum for at least one year.
The Museum of American Porcelain Art will open to the general public in 2017. In advance of its grand opening, we are offering private tours and preview presentations for anyone interested in learning about and wishing to support our mission. Please contact us for more information.
