Dr. William E. Knight Porcelain Gallery Image
RAM has owned one of the largest collections of fine Boehm porcelain in the state of Arkansas, and now has the ability to permanently display it to the public in the new Dr. William E. Knight Porcelain Gallery.

This, of course, is a precaution to protect the art objects yet it deprives us of exploring surfaces and learning about materials, techniques and artistic intent with one of our most important sensory tools, our sense of touch.
