Alfred Ceramic Art Museum
The Alfred Ceramic Art Museum at Alfred University houses nearly 8,000 ceramic objects ranging from small pottery shards recovered from ancient civilizations to modern and contemporary ceramic art. The primary mission of Alfred Ceramic Art Museum is to collect, preserve, conserve, research, interpret and exhibit ceramic art for aesthetic and educational purposes. The museum is a research and teaching facility, which offers an engagement in cultural history via ceramic art to the student, artist, scholar and collector as well as the local, national and international community.
The Museum is now open with two new exhibitions, Selections: The Archive and Knot Stories. Selections: The Archive is a view into the permanent collection of the Alfred Ceramic Art Museum focused on recent acquisitions in context with other major works. Knot Stories is an exhibition of ceramic sculpture by Paul S. Briggs inspired by Black Poetry which transmutes stories of suffering into songs of perseverance.
