Description - Pots of Promise by Cheryl R. Ganz
Historical catalog and essays reveal the story of the Mexican artisans of Hull House and the history of the kilns and pottery. Exploring the untold stories of Hull-House arts programs in the 1920s and 1930s and the pottery program at the commercial Hull-House Kilns, Pots of Promise also addresses the story of Mexicans in Chicago and the history of Hull-House in the years when Jane Addams increasingly turned her attention beyond the settlement house she had co-founded. This book is the first on the Hull-House Kilns; it examines Mexicans in the Hull-House colonia, Chicago's largest Mexican settlement. Pots of Promise includes 131 color and black-and-white photographs, many of them previously unpublished, and four essays: "Bringing Art to Life: The Practice of Art at Hull-House" by Peggy Glowacki; "Incorporating Reform and Religion: Mexican Immigrants, Hull-House, and the Church" by David A. Badillo; "Shaping Clay, Shaping Lives: The Hull-House Kilns" by Cheryl R. Ganz; and "Forging a Mexican National Identity in Chicago: Mexican Migrants and Hull-House" by Rick A. Lpez.
