Face Jugs: Art and Ritual in 19th-Century South Carolina opened at the Milwaukee Art Museum last week. I took a short break from work and drew two of the face jugs today. I haven’t read all of the information for the exhibition yet but apparently scholars think these jugs were made by slaves in a very specific area of South Carolina (That may be of interest to one of our dedicated blog followers). I really like these objects and am looking forward to learning more about them. It’s a beautiful exhibition and definitely worth visiting.
