Dragons in Bama
Just as Laura Vinroot Poole's Charlotte boutique, Capitol (the shop with the incredible garden wall designed by Patrick Blanc), delights even jaded New Yorkers, the Birmingham Museum of Arts' Asian ceramics continue to command international attention.
For the past few months I've been sharing my excitement about the Museum's soon-to-open exhibition, Dragons and Lotus Blossoms, the largest Vietnamese ceramics show ever mounted in the U.S. So, I was thrilled to learn that the BMA's Le Dynasty glazed stoneware jar, one of the pieces in the exhibition, was recently ranked by Apollo as the Ninth Most Important Acquisition Worldwide in 2011. Even more reason to head to Alabama this winter. Congrats BMA!
