Engaged in art making and teaching for nearly 30 years, Anna Greidanus, Professor of Art at Calvin College, exhibits work regionally, nationally, and internationally. Anna has received recognition through organizations such as the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts and The National Art Education Association. Anna earned grants from the Michigan Council for the Arts and Humanities, The Getty Foundation and, in 2009, the Lilly Endowment. Her art features sculptural ceramics and mixed media installations. Raised on a Midwestern farm, Anna’s work references the material of place and experience of community. Her current installation work involves collaborations with others engaging themes of survivorship of individuals in communities and Earth's ecosystems. Michigan venues for Anna’s work have included regional art museums, Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park, and college galleries, e.g., the Feb. 2011 Calvin College Art Faculty Exhibition.
