VCAC Assistant Ceramics Coordinator


Jordan Olsen is a multimedia artist working in ceramics, wood, textiles, papier-mâché, musical composition and performance, and a variety of other visual and performance media to create works that examine the composition of ourselves and the world we live in. His interests are broad-ranging and include brewing science, urban agriculture, foraging for wild edibles, material self-sufficiency, climbing tall trees and skipping rocks really far. Since 2015 he has been a part of developing the Local Clay Workshop with Amy Joy Hosterman at the VCAC and is super excited to continue helping to expand our understanding of the rich, delicious Yooper Yum-Yum clay that is found at camp.
He resides in Minneapolis, MN where he often volunteers with the Cedar Cultural Center during many of their local and international music events. He also bikes all over town all year round, and once upon a time worked downtown fixing watches for six years. He is committed to social justice, environmental stewardship, and constant curiosity in the pursuit of knowledge.
