Artist information provided by Minnesota State Mankato’s Department of Art:

Kevin Snipes’ constructions are at once playful, but suggest apprehensive narratives on the concept of otherness. In his porcelain vessels, Snipes draws references from pop culture as well as an array of historical influences. His work has been exhibited in solo and group shows both nationally and internationally. He has received grants from the Joan Mitchell Foundation, the Ohio Arts Council, the Pittsburgh Foundation and Creative Capital. Snipes is currently a visiting artist at Wesleyan College in Macon, Georgia.”
