Cole Calvin is a multi-disciplinary artist of mixed heritage living and working in Boise, Idaho. As a Gay, Black/Biracial man, Calvin’s works explore concepts of racial and sexual identity and how those ideas inform his experience of the world around him. Working primarily with clay and semi-precious metals, Calvin creates pieces that shift from functional to fine art. His sculptures and jewelry range from narrative collections to individual works inspired by the natural world. When creating new works, Calvin takes into consideration the ways in which his audience might interact with the work, with an awareness of how a piece feels in the hand or relates to the body. Through this exploration, he engages the senses beyond the visual and into a more visceral and tangible relationship between art and audience. 

The James Castle House encourages persons with disabilities and those who require language assistance to participate in its programs and activities. If you anticipate needing an accommodation, please email, as soon as possible, but no later than 72 hours before the event. To request assistance, you may also dial TTY 1-800-377-3529.
