Gregory's Fountain of the Atom, made for the 1939 New York World’s Fair and admired by Albert Einstein and countless others, was at that time the world’s largest ceramic sculpture of the modern era. Gregory came into his own during what F. Scott Fitzgerald, author of The Great Gatsby, named the Jazz Age.

The Alfred Ceramic Art Museum would like to thank Tom C. Folk for his help in bringing this important exhibition to the museum and, as a result, helping the museum address its mission of bringing the best of ceramic art and its important history to the attention of the art world. "The 1930s Jazz Age Sculpture of Waylande Gregory" is an exhibition that honors, highlights, and celebrates the American experience in Ceramic Art.
