PGM Artifact of the Month: March 2018

This week Pueblo Grande Museum Curator of Collections, Lindsey Vogel-Teeter will be doing a special Behind the Scenes Tour focused on the "The Stories Pots Tell", in honor of our current changing exhibit, Fragments: Broken Bowls Tell More Tales.

During this tour, guests will have a chance to see a variety of pottery pieces, whole vessels and fragments! To give everyone a taste of some of the wonderful kinds of pieces that will be on this upcoming tour, here is a "prize" piece from our collection that is not often seen and has a great story to tell!

Meet 2016.11-E7479-2 & 2016.11-E7479-3

This wedding vase, by well known Maricopa potter Ida Redbird from the Gila River Indian Community, is over 18 inches tall! It also has two  prize ribbons. One from the 1950 Arizona State Fair, and one from the 1963 Inter-Tribal Indian Ceremonial in Gallup, New Mexico.

A true piece of Arizona History.
