A number of ceramists at work during the past two decades have explored painterly and sculptural concerns not always associated with the clay medium. Mary Frank’s sculptural work Horse and Rider (1982) features starkly expressive yet fragmented skeletal figures. Works like Sergei Isupov’s Rustle (1999) and Marc Leuthold’s Diptych (1998) extend traditional boundaries, indicating the innovative possibilities for the future of American ceramics as the 21st century begins its course.

The museum offers a notable array of exhibitions and educational programs centered on its holdings of American art, a collection that ranges in date from the Colonial era to the present, and includes 5,000 clay objects. Since 1932, the Everson Museum has taken a leadership role in the collection and exhibition of ceramics. Today, it maintains the most comprehensive display of American ceramics in the nation, with over 1,000 exemplars of the medium on permanent exhibition.
