This exhibition features Karl Martz and the Legacy of Indiana University Ceramics. Martz’s influence spread throughout Indiana and beyond through the ceramics program that he established at IU in 1945, and through his students.  The comprehensive exhibition features major works by Karl Martz, his wife Becky Brown, faculty that taught (or still teach) in the IU Ceramics Department, and MFA students who went on to establish successful careers in ceramics.  


Karl and his wife, Becky Brown, were important in the lives of his students and others who worked with him.  Virginia Scotchie says: “I feel so honored to have known Karl Martz and his wife …such talented and fantastic people.”  


The Haan Museum will host a Lunch and Learn event related to the exhibition on June 4.  Check the Museum’s website at for additional activities and more details.  


Museum Hours:  Wed – Sat:  1-4 PM.  

Admission:  $10 for adults; $5 for ages 5-17.
