American Museum of Ceramic Art (AMOCA)

Pasadena Art Alliance

Located in Pomona, AMOCA is one of the few museums in the country dedicated solely to ceramic art and the only one of its kind on the West Coast. The Museum champions the art, history, creation, and technology of ceramics through exhibitions, collections, outreach, and studio programming.

Grants funding will be used to support the exhibition Discovering Saar Ceramics: The Artistry and Legacy of Richard Saar, a ceramicist who worked in the decorative arts. The exhibition will also include work by a selection of contemporary artists working with a similar approach and tradition. AMOCA’s exhibition is slated to run from April 14 through September 1, 2018.
