Grande Fuoco was a group exhibition representing members of the KCAD Clay Collective (KCC) at CODA gallery, an off campus venue in dowtown Grand Rapids, MI.
The KCAD Clay Collective is a student group, made up of various majors college wide, dedicated to the advancement of education in the arts through ceramics as a point of entry. The group is active in fundraising, hosting creative events and visiting artists, community service, and participating in arts related activities that enrich one’s education.
As faculty advisor to the KCC I highly encourage this type of activity and am active in fundraising, proposal writing, and planning. I founded the group in 2009 to embolden its members to be pro-active in the pursuit of experiences that are relevant to their creative trajectories.
