The establishment of the CCC brings recognition, structure, institutional support, designated space, growth possibilities, and a crucial opportunity to build an endowment for reliable funding to a tradition that brings unparalleled, life-changing experiences to students and supports major innovations and contributions in the field of contemporary ceramic arts.
We are now in an important fundraising and endowment-building period for the CCC, and two special patrons, Linda and Tod White, have generously pledged to match, dollar for dollar, every dollar raised for the center up to $500,000 through the end of 2020. This means that every single dollar of the first $500,000 we raise, automatically doubles, bringing the fundraising potential for this match to $1,000,000.
We ask you to consider making a significant donation to the CCC endowment during this matching period when you can double the impact of your contribution.
The CCC endowment will support operations and activities including:
- Providing merit-based scholarships for Ceramic Arts Track MFA Art students, and advanced BFA Ceramics majors;
- Providing support grants for projects proposed by students, faculty, and guest artists and scholars, as well as educational and research-related travel by faculty and students;
- Visiting artist and scholar lectures, presentations, and demonstrations;
- Short-term and long-term residencies for artists focusing on ceramic arts;
- Multi-artist work-intensive programs, “master” classes, and symposia relevant to the field of contemporary ceramic arts;
- Temporary exhibitions and displays of artwork by visiting artists and artists in residence to be mounted in Ceramic Arts Program galleries and School of Art galleries;
- Facilitating work by artists both on- and off-site on projects with consultation, assistance, and/or collaboration of Ceramic Arts students and faculty;
- Campus, community, and alumni outreach events and programs.
