Alfred Ceramic Art Museum to host alumna Cordova’s exhibition

"La persistencia del verdor" Cristina Cordova, 2016

ALFRED, NY – Alfred University alumna and noted ceramic artist Cristina Cordova’s work will be shown at the Alfred Ceramic Museum in an upcoming exhibition.

The exhibition is titled “Jungla” and contains some of Cordova’s sculpture and drawings. Following an opening reception from 6-9 p.m. Feb. 2, the exhibition will run through July 29.

Cordova earned a Master of Fine Arts degree from Alfred University in 2002 and also has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Puerto Rico. She says “Jungla” refers to “a region of dense, intractable wilderness that sustains an ongoing evolutionary dance governed by uncivilized forces. This tropical landscape of my youth is a beacon to an identity, tying me back to a specific geography and the sediment of generations.”

Cordova’s work is held in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C., the Fuller Craft Museum (Massachusetts), the Mint Museum of Craft and Design (North Carolina), the Museum of Contemporary Art of Puerto Rico, the Museum of Art of Puerto Rico, and the Alfred Ceramic Art Museum, as well as in numerous prestigious private collections.
