Catawba Pottery, Smithsonian Anthropological Archives, ca. 1900
In celebration of Native American Heritage Month, the Columbia Museum of Art presents a discussion of the Catawba Nation and their pottery tradition with Brent Burgin, director of the archives at the University of South Carolina Lancaster’s Native American Studies Archive. Indigenous to the Carolinas, the Catawba Nation is the only federally recognized tribe in the state of South Carolina. Their pottery tradition has been practiced continuously for 6,000 years.

ArtBreak is a program that looks at art through a different lens. Each session features a speaker who gives insight into their worldview by sharing their interpretation of works of art at the CMA. The morning begins in the lobby at 10:30 a.m. with pastries and coffee sold at The Wired Goat pop-up café, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the educational initiatives at the museum. Program starts at 11:00 a.m. Sponsored in part through Leslie’s Legacy Fund.

'ArtBreak: Catawba Indian Heritage with USC-Lancaster Archivist Brent Burgin' is free with membership or admission. It takes place Tuesday, November 8. (Pop-up café begins at 10:30 a.m.; program begins at 11:00 a.m).
