Scripps Collection / The American Museum of Ceramic Art
The Scripps Collection is legendary. It was almost singlehandedly complied by Fred Marer, a math professor at Los Angeles City College. He amassed the collection with modest means, mostly through buying the pieces directly from the artists. The exhibition includes over 180 examples, and all are amazing. The exhibition only lasts 10 more days, so I encourage you to do whatever it takes to go see it. I've seen a lot of good pots, but this exhibition is legendary.

This exhibit just keeps on giving, one winner after the next.
There is also a Patsy Cox installation, which is pretty great.
These lucky kids made their filed trip out to Pomona. You have until March 30th to make yours. Seriously, go!
