Telling the story of ancient Southwest cultures through their pottery

The story of ancient Southwest cultures can be told through the pottery they crafted. While a constant for Pueblo people, ceramics evolved to reflect the historical and cultural circumstances of their lives.

A new exhibition featuring 100 rarely exhibited ceramics from the extensive collection at CU-Boulder’s Museum of Natural History will take visitors through more than 1,000 years of Southwest history (A.D. 500-1600).
