Death of Kirk Mangus Saddens Kent

The School of Art mourns the loss of Professor Kirk Mangus, head of the ceramics program at Kent State University who died on Nov. 24 of an aneurysm.

Mangus had served as head of ceramics at Kent State since 1985. He also taught at Alfred University Summer School, the Cleveland Institute of Art, the Cranbrook Academy of Art, the University of Georgia’s Cortona (Italy) program, Anderson Ranch Arts Center, Appalachian Center for Craft, Penland School of Crafts, Peters Valley Craft Center and numerous other institutions. He was a lecturer, visiting artist and resident artist in China, Japan, Korea, France, Italy, Finland, Lithuania, Canada and throughout the United States.

Mangus was a prolific artist whose ceramics and drawings have been exhibited and collected worldwide for over 35 years. He was the recipient of two National Endowment for the Arts grants, four Ohio Arts Council fellowships, a Pennsylvania Council on the Arts fellowship, and a McKnight fellowship residency at the Northern Clay Center in Minneapolis.

He is survived by his wife, Eva Kwong, a part-time faculty member in ceramics at Kent State, as well as his son Jasper and daughter Una.

In December, Anderson Turner, Director of Galleries and close friend to Kirk, coordinated a memorial service celebrating Kirk Mangus's life in the School of Art Gallery. Several hundred friends, colleagues and co-workers attended and shared poems, artwork and memories. The Gallery walls were covered in correspondence, artwork, letters of sympathy sent from alumni and friends from all over the world.

Music Student Hired by Akron Symphony

Kent State University senior music performance major Yang Zeng has been offered a contract to be part of the first violin section of the Akron Symphony. Zeng, originally from Kunming, Yunnan, China, has been a student at Kent State’s Hugh A. Glauser School of Music since 2010. He started studying music at age six.

An only child, due to China’s one-child rule, Zeng was entered into the Shanghai Conservatory of Music to pursue elementary secondary and music studies, taking him far from his parents at the young age of 10. For 11 years, Zeng lived with his grandparents while studying at the conservatory.
