Each year CPMA funds a Scholarship at Cleveland Institute of Art. The Scholarship is dedicated to R. Guy Cowan and recipients are selected by CIA Ceramics Dept. faculty. The 2016-17 academic year Scholarship is shared by Fox Nicely and Kimberly Chapman. Fox was able to attend the 2016 Cowan Pottery Symposium where he presented and discussed the ideas which drive his ceramic creations and showed attendees a selection of his current work. As has become customary at the Symposium, attendees were able to purchase from this selection for addition to their collections.
