PEWABIC IS MANY THINGS. TO MANY PEOPLE.
Pewabic is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit dedicated to enriching the human spirit through clay.
Our founder, Mary Chase Perry Stratton, was an innovator. In the early twentieth century, her experiments with glazes changed the face of contemporary ceramics. That spirit – her living legacy – is what drives Pewabic today.
Pewabic was founded in 1903 – and while many things have changed, our culture remains the same. We foster a progressive environment by celebrating new artists, exhibiting innovative work and offering opportunities to explore, experiment and invent.
We continue to redefine our role in the community through outreach and education, looking for new ways to make ceramics relevant and accessible to people of all ages and skill levels. We believe that everyone has creativity waiting to come out.
Like our founder, we are creating our next makers, artists and appreciators. And like our founder, we are supporting and recognizing the contributions of everyone who takes part.

The Arab American National Museum in Detroit - DISPELLING misconceptions about Arab Americans and other minorities.
The Arab American National Museum (AANM) is the first and only museum in the United States devoted to Arab American history and culture. Arab Americans have enriched the economic, political and cultural landscape of American life. By bringing the voices and faces of Arab Americans to mainstream audiences, we continue our commitment to dispel misconceptions about Arab Americans and other minorities. Since opening in 2005, the Museum has shed light on the shared experiences of immigrants and ethnic groups, paying tribute to the diversity of our nation.
The Arab American National Museum documents, preserves and presents the history, culture and contributions of Arab Americans.
