Meridian: Interactive Art Tour
Clay Between Two Seas

Thursday, January 19, 2017 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

The Meridian: Global Young Professionals have an extraordinary opportunity on Thursday, January 19: a free, private guided tour of Clay Between Two Seas: From the Abbasid Court to Puebla de los Angeles, the beautiful international display of dazzling colors, techniques and famous pottery at The Crow Collection of Asian Art.

The exhibit is the focal point, but the tour with the Gallery Educator is also designed to inspire creative thinking while informing the Meridians about the art, the techniques and the connection between Iraq, China and Mexico that led to the beautiful works on display.

The Crow Collection partnered with the Museo Internacional del Barroco, Puebla, Mexico, and the State Council for Culture and the Arts of Puebla, Mexico, to create this exhibit and debut it in the Dallas Arts District. The exhibition includes, according to The Crow, "historic works from the Museo Franz Mayer in Mexico City, contemporary ceramics from Talavera de la Reyna in Puebla, and a selection of historic Chinese ceramics from the Crow Collection of Asian Art’s permanent collection."

Clay Between Two Seas is more than an art exhibit, it is also a history lesson, as The Crow Collection's summary explains: "Together, these works of art reveal a remarkable story that spans 11 centuries and three continents. The threads of this exhibition — depicting brilliant technological innovation and design showcasing the shapes and sheen of Talavera pottery made in Puebla — extend back through warring European kingdoms, protectionist Chinese dynasties and burgeoning early Islamic empires, to the banks of the Euphrates in what is now Iraq."

The Meridian tour of Clay Between Two Seas promises to be an evening of beauty and history at an exhibit that was centuries in the making.
