Art Detectives

Presented by Kalamazoo Institute of Arts at Kalamazoo Institute of Arts, Kalamazoo MI

Aug 13 2022
Art Detectives

Art Detectives will read Shaped by her Hands: Potter Maria Martinez by Anna Harber Freeman and Barbara Gonzalez, before making a craft with Arty Mouse.

The most renowned Native American Indian potter of her time, Maria Povika Martinez learned pottery as a child under the guiding hands of her ko-ōo, her aunt. She grew up to discover a new firing technique that turned her pots black and shiny and made them―and Maria―famous. This inspiring story of family and creativity illuminates how Maria’s belief in sharing her love of clay brought success and joy from her New Mexico Pueblo to people all across the country.
