Celebrating Chinese Ceramic Arts & the Weese Collection

This program will be hosted on Zoom. Please register now to reserve your spot.

Celebrating the William C. Weese Collection of Chinese Ceramics and the creation of the Weese Program in Ceramic Art, made possible through the extraordinary generosity of William C. Weese MD (BS ‘65). The Weese Collection includes more than 1,000 ceramics and decorative arts from China’s Neolithic period through the Ming and Qing dynasties, with pieces dating from as early as 3000 BCE through to the mid 19th century.

This event will feature Natsu Oyobe, UMMA Curator for Asian Art, in conversation with William C. Weese in a vibrant discussion about ceramic arts, including a preview of a fall exhibition of Asian ceramic arts, highlights of the Weese Collection, and Dr. Weese’s collecting interest and practice.
