     Opening September 22, 2012
the Museum is showcasing the ce-
ramic sculpture of Ohio native Jack
Earl. The first studio artist to use
porcelain, Earl draws his inspiration
from landscapes, comics, master
paintings, found photographs, and
biblical stories. Earl’s work reflects
his wit and insight into human
behavior and is rooted in the can-
dor and honesty of common lives
and experiences.                                                       In Association with the Smithsonian Institution
