Education is key to the mission and ideals of the Museum of American Porcelain Art.
The Museum makes its art accessible and enjoyable, serving as a resource to schools and colleges. It presents its art in historical context using materials and other media that foster a broader understanding and appreciation of art.
On a pre-arranged basis, the Museum also opens its collection for scholarly research, documentation, and interpretation of American porcelain art.
The Museum welcomes school visits. Friendly, knowledgeable museum staff are available to lead students and teachers on tours, helping them develop their visual and analytic skills through close observation and lively conversation.
The Museum’s commitment to adult learners is equally strong. We engage the community through programs and presentations that draw on the cultural diversity of the museum’s immediate region and that serve diverse audiences.
We also promote the rich history and legacy of the museum’s facility – Telling Mansion – and its grounds, opening it to individual and group tours. Our goal is to inspire communities everywhere to participate in the preservation of their local community assets for future generations to enjoy.
Through these activities and our overall commitment to the community, we see the Museum as a means of enhancing educational and economic development.
