Unearthed: The NEHMA Ceramic Collection

The Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art (NEHMA) at Utah State University (USU) and University Press of Colorado announce the publication of Unearthed: The NEHMA Ceramic Collection and the Woman Behind It. The ground-breaking, 256-page publication showcases selections from NEHMA’s exceptional ceramic collection that focuses on the history of ceramics west of the Mississippi River since 1900. With substantive essays by art historians Matthew Limb and Billie Sessions and illustrated biographical entries on more than 200 artists and artworks, the publication intentionally highlights artists who deserve more recognition and have yet to be contextualized within broader ceramics history. Unearthed ensures that the legacy and connoisseurship of philanthropist Nora Eccles Treadwell Harrison endures for generations.

Unearthed: The NEHMA Ceramics Collection and the Woman Behind It is available to order online through the University Press of Colorado and other online book retailers.
