About the Speakers
Tori Arpad-Cotta’s site-based practice ranges deep, into the rusted remnants of farms past, and far into the as yet unbuilt places accessible only by foot and kayak.

Arpad-Cotta received a Florida State Cultural Council Artist’s Fellowship and NCECA Emerging Artist Award. Exhibitions include the Shumen Biennial, Bulgaria and others internationally since 1996. Her work is featured in Land Arts of the American West by Bill Gilbert & Chris Taylor, Confrontational Ceramics by Judith S. Schwartz, and Ceramics: Mastering the Craft by Richard Zakin. Arpad-Cotta teaches Ceramics in FIU’s Art + Art History Department and works the earth on a few acres in the Redland Agricultural District.
