The new exhibition will feature a collection of ceramics from the village of Mata Ortiz in North Central Mexico. The village is located in the high desert area of Chihuahua. The pottery comes from the ancient Indian Casas Grande tradition. The tradition of making this pottery had been dormant for many hundreds of years.
