The Newark Museum invites you to enjoy its outstanding collections, exhibitions, programs and educational resources in its multi-building campus located in the heart of the Downtown Arts District of Newark.

Founded in 1909, The Newark Museum underwent an extensive four-year, $23 million renovation and expansion which was completed in 1989. The design by the world famous architect Michael Graves was awarded the American Institute of Architects' Honor award. 

The Museum complex, the largest in New Jersey, weaves together 80 galleries of art and science, a mini zoo, planetarium, gift shops, cafe, auditorium, sculpture garden, schoolhouse and the Ballantine House, the restored 1885 mansion that is a National Historic Landmark.

Earthen Elegance: African Ceramic Vessels Newark Museum Collection - November 26, 2004 through August 14, 2005

FEATURED EXHIBITIONS

Earthen Elegance:
African Ceramic Vessels From The Newark Museum Collection

Through December 31, 2005

The Museum’s latest African art exhibition Earthen Elegance: African Ceramic Vessels From The Newark Museum Collection presents the work of artists from diverse cultures throughout the African continent. In Africa, pottery is usually a woman’s art. Female potters work without the aid of a mechanized wheel, making their achievements all the more impressive. The exceptional works on view, all created in the 20th century, testify to the continuing vibrancy of one of humanity’s most ancient artistic traditions.

This exhibition will be on view through December 31, 2005.

Location: 2nd Floor, Main Building

Art of Africa, the Americas and the Pacific

The origins of the African collection, both Northern and Sub-Saharan, can be traced back to the Museum's earliest days, when the Museum's founder, John Cotton Dana, traveled to North Africa and encouraged others to collect on their travels as well. In addition to fine examples of African sculpture, including noteworthy pieces from the Yoruba, the collection has important holdings of ceramics, baskets and metal arts, with a growing emphasis on African textiles, including commemorative cloths. 

In 1913, examples of Southwest pottery began the Native American collection. Today it consists of outstanding late-nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century pottery and textiles. Covering all areas of North America, including Alaska, it incorporates jewelry, baskets, wood carving and quill and bead work. 

Objects from New Guinea, including masks and ceremonial boards, are among the highlights of the collections of the Pacific Basin.
