i am in a bfa program... of course concentrating in ceramics... and we
are going to nyc the later part of october to visit museums and
galleries... as most of the other students are
painters/drawers/photographers... they will probably be going to other
places... any suggestions on where to go to see ceramics besides moma
and the arts/craft museum?? it's a one day trip... so we have about
8 hours to see everything...

also wanted to know about mfa programs... interested mostly in
california... or the west coast... in ceramics... can look these
up.... but they don't describe the facilities... or programs...

thanks for any information....

Eileen - don't know of pots at MOMA but the Metropolitan has
probably the finest collection of oriental ceramics in the
country (?). Also phone the Asian Society & the Japan Society
to see what they have on show currently.

Thought - just because you love pots is no reason not to just throw
yourself into the first rate permanent collection of
paintings at MOMA. It's a thrill to see the real Mccoy up
close. And Van Gogh certainly suggests colors for my work.
Man does not live by pots alone.

Lest you get too frazzled, there's always "the next trip"
which you can give yourself for no particular reason when time
permits - or a special show occurs.
HAVE A GREATTIME what ever you see! Karen Gringhuis
