Dedicated collections galleries introduce visitors to the ceramic, glass, wood, metal, fiber, and mixed media works in the museum’s collections. Many of the approximately 250 pieces are on view for the first time.

Exhibition sections draw connections between works of all media. In Description: Seeing the Object, viewers are encouraged to explore artworks visually, through the language of form, color, and surface patterning. In Intention: The Artist Speaks, each object reflects a specific world view, emotion, or imaginative viewpoint of the artist. Finally, Reflection: Objects in Context explores the ways in which the objects are influenced by the environment—physical, historical, or social—in which they were created.
