With most people in town only for such a short time, we picked ten from the vast cast that you shouldn’t sleep on.”

Opening in fall 2014, the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland presents the first comprehensive survey of the work of Kirk Mangus (1952-2013), an internationally recognized ceramicist and head of the ceramics department for 30 years at Kent State University. Rose Bouthillier, Associate Curator and Publications Manager, MOCA Cleveland, presents an introduction to this notable artist and exhibition highlighting his immeasurable contributions to the field. Eva Kwong, Mangus’s widow, and Mindy Solomon offer perspectives on Mangus’s influences, forms, and style—all of which propose an unguarded, impassioned way of thinking, living, and loving.
