2000-11-11 until 2001-04-29
Oakland Museum of Califoria
Oakland, CA, USA

Fired by Ideals: Arequipa Pottery and the Arts and Crafts Movement is the first major exhibition of pottery produced at the Arequipa Sanatorium in Marin County during the years 1911-1918. The exhibition includes more than 100 pieces in what is thought to be the largest showing of these works since the Arequipa studio exhibited at the Panama-Pacific International Exposition of 1915 in San Francisco. A series of public programs about California pottery will complement the exhibition, which runs from Nov. 11 through April 29, 2001 at the Oakland Museum of California.

November 11, 2000 through April 29, 2001 Fired by Ideals: Arequipa Pottery and the Arts and Crafts Movement Art Special Gallery Presented by the Art Department Fired by Ideals: Arequipa Pottery and the Arts and Crafts Movement is the first major exhibition of pottery produced at the Arequipa Sanatorium in Marin County during the years 1911-1918. The exhibition includes more than 100 pieces in what is thought to be the largest showing of these works since the Arequipa studio exhibited at the Panama-Pacific International Exposition of 1915 in San Francisco. A series of public programs about California pottery will complement the exhibition, which runs from Nov. 11 through April 29, 2001 at the Oakland Museum of California. Arequipa pottery, produced by tuberculosis patients at the sanatorium, is recognized today as among the most important California pottery of the Arts and Crafts period. This exhibition features examples of the wide variety of pottery designs and techniques that characterized the work of the studio. Also included are tiles from Casa Dorinda, a 65-room Spanish Colonial mansion near Santa Barbara that was designed by Carleton Winslow in 1916. In its largest and final commission, Arequipa produced 8750 tiles, based on Hispano-Moresque designs by Frank Ingerson, for the lower great hall and upper corridor of the mansion.

The exhibition tells two stories, that of the sanatorium itself and that of the pottery produced there.
