This event, titled Traditional Pots and Provocations, is the latest chapter of an ongoing discussion that began as a blog scuffle between Jones and Clark in 2011 and continued as a symposium at the Mint Museum in Charlotte, North Carolina, in 2012. Traditional Pots and Provocations will take place on Sunday, April 19, 2015, 2-4 pm, in the Kathryn O’Keeffe Theater of the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture.
