The FIA began collecting contemporary ceramics in the mid 20th century, and its collection has been substantially increased by gifts from Dr. Robert and Deanna Harris Burger. Bob and Debbie (as they are known by friends) Burger began giving selected works from their extensive collection of contemporary ceramics in 2005, and since that time, they have donated more than 200 works. Their gift served as a catalyst for the addition of the Contemporary Craft wing in 2018. Additional works of contemporary ceramics were gifted to the FIA in 2018 from the Sidney Swidler Collection.
