The Contemporary Clay Collection

Over the past three decades, JCCC’s Nerman Museum collection has grown to include hundreds of major pieces by contemporary artists working in clay. Recent Acquisitions highlights a few of the many extraordinary ceramics in the collection. Major installations (Collection Focus areas) of works from JCCC's contemporary ceramic collection are sited in the Regnier Center, Carlsen Center, OCB and the Wylie Hospitality and Culinary Academy. In the spring of 2016, the Nerman Museum will organize and present the 50th anniversary exhibition of the National Council for Education in the Ceramic Arts. Kansas City was recently selected to host NCECA's important 50th anniversary conference.
