What is Adopt-a-Pot?

Contribute to the dynamic history of the Peacock Room by virtually adopting one of the ceramics Charles Lang Freer chose to display along the walls of blue and gold. Support the Freer Gallery of Art's forthcoming exhibition The Peacock Room Comes to America, which for the first time will allow visitors to see the room as it looked in Freer's Detroit home in 1908—and to have their names displayed below their chosen ceramic objects on this website.

Browse through the following selection of Freer's ceramics. Choose the object you wish to adopt and fill out the Adopt-a-Pot form, making sure to include the accession number (example: F1905.123) along with your fully tax-deductible donation of $500 per item. You may adopt as many ceramics as you wish, but each pot may be adopted only once. Your name will then appear with your adopted ceramic(s) on this website. After the adoption campaign is completed, your name also will be listed in a special section of The Story of the Beautiful website (launching later this year) for two years.
