CSULB Ceramics Professor Tony Marsh in Los Angeles Times article

Posted on April 27, 2018 by School of Art

tonymarsh2CSULB Ceramics Professor Tony Marsh was in a Los Angeles Times article on the ceramics arts in Los Angeles.  As Prof. Marsh says in the article, “I’ve never seen this level of interest in clay in L.A. before…This fanning out into almost every gallery. That’s a new phenomenon and is changing the landscape seriously. That’s got me excited. That was unimaginable 10 years ago.” As Leah Ollman also writes, “Cal State Long Beach has become a leading incubator of talent in the field and this fall will inaugurate its Center for Contemporary Ceramics. The CCC formalizes the university’s long practice, spearheaded in the 1980s by Marsh, of inviting artists from across the globe to work experimentally alongside students in the extensive facilities on campus — ‘not to teach,’ he says, ‘but to model.’ Students can have an academic experience in the classroom, he says, but they also need the real-life experience that can come through assisting artists in residence, collaborating with them or simply observing them at work.” Keep up the great work Ceramics!
