American Museum of Ceramic Art (AMOCA)

Pasadena Art Alliance

Located in Pomona, the American Museum of Ceramic Art (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 grant will be used to partially fund Dirk Staschke: Beyond Nature Morte.  Staschke creates transgressive and lavish sculpture inspired by 16th century Dutch vanitas still-life paintings that show a surprisingly contemporary commentary on craving, over-consumption and excess.  The show will run from April 9, 2016 through September 17, 2016.
