To Support the Ceramic Arts in Michigan.
The Michigan Ceramic Art Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. To fund our programs, we rely heavily on donations from individuals and businesses to augment dues collected from our members. Even more important, we rely on the generosity of artists who donate their time for workshops, on institutions who contribute space, materials and funds, and on a small group of dedicated volunteers who spend countless hours planning and implementing MCAA activities.
