ABOUT THE ARTIST

A committed educator, Scollon is an Associate Professor and Chair of the First Year CORE Studio Program at California College of the Arts. Moving between ‘sculpture’ and ‘ceramics,’ functional objects and aesthetically autonomous objects, social engagement and recorded performances, he investigates issues of education, access, taste, class, gender, and queerness.

Born in Rochester, Michigan, Scollon received his BFA from Albion College, and an MFA in Ceramics along with an MA in Visual and Critical Studies, both from California College of the Arts. His work has been seen at museums, galleries, craft fairs, design blogs, and gay biker bars. He is represented by Romer Young Gallery and he currently lives and works in San Francisco, California.
