Returning Black Bear Speaks readers will recognize that this is a new logo! For those of you who've never been to this site before, here's the logo!!!
This bear was lovingly created by illustration professor Molly Corriveau, who is also a master sculptor and painter. Professor Corriveau teaches at Kendall College of Art & Design here in Grand Rapids, which is part of Ferris State University. Her work has appeared in numerous shows and in a large number of publications. Corriveau completed her MFA at the California College of Art in Berkeley, CA and has also taught at Ohio University in Athens, OH. She recently received tenure at Kendall. She is well known here in Grand Rapids, not only for her fantastic sculptures, but also because of her exceptional teaching ability and dedication to her students. Ask anyone who's ever taken one of her classes, they all love her. Corriveau has received a number of awards for her artwork - far to many to list here - and she has been voted "favorite instructor" repeatedly by her students at Kendall.
