Become a Featured Artist!

We aim to support young and emerging artists on-and-off campus by providing a platform to share their art with the world. At CC, we believe student artwork is worth more than just a letter grade and the value of all artwork is found by those it touches.

Artist of the Month

Cara grew up in Bloomfield Hills, MI and currently attends the University of Loyola Chicago, expected to graduate in 2020. Her studies are currently focused on Psychology, Ceramics, and Sculpture.

  • Congratulations Cara Sevec for receiving College Collections first ever “Original Artist of the Month” award for February 2019.  Cara has been closely tied to the CC community since we first launched in the spring of 2017. This makes her one of our FIRST EVER organic members!

    She joined College Collections because she believes in the message and the opportunity it gives for what most consider a niche community. Cara finds it exciting to see art from all over the country and world as well as having a platform for individual artists to get the credit they deserve.

  • Her preferred mediums are ceramics and sculpture because they involve form in space and incorporate craft, technique, as well as aspects of drawing and painting. She believes practicing ceramics or sculpture are beneficial for both the body and mind. Cara enjoys the versatility of these mediums and how they incorporate various materials and techniques.  She also enjoys pencil/ contour drawing, painting, and fashion.

    Art has always been very special to Cara. She first became intrigued by the arts in middle school. First drawn to music and advancing to fine art in high school.  She found art gave her the ability to challenge herself, learn more about her inner life and be a part of a supportive community has always drawn me to art. Cara feels she wouldn’t be herself best self without ART!

    Cara’s biggest inspiration to create is her great aunt, Jean Seberg. Who was an American-French film actress in the 60s and 70s, she was an activist for civil and human rights, as well as a style icon. She poured her heart into every facet of her life and displayed fearlessness in her artistry. Unfortunately, Cara never had the chance to meet her, however, she plays a huge role in her identity as an artist.

  • Thus far, her greatest achievement as an artist is having her piece “Blurred Vision” selected for the 2019 Student Juried Exhibition at her school’s Ralph Arnold Gallery. Out of 70 applicants, she is among a handful of students chosen for the show. Her piece will compete for first, second or third place, which will be announced at the opening reception in a week, wish her luck!

    There is no question the future shines bright for CC member Cara Sevec. With her knowledge in the fields of fine arts and psychology, she hopes to continue on to graduate school for a master’s degree in Art Therapy. Her dream is to have my own studio where others can create with intentions of pursuing art as a hobby, goal, or therapy. Cara will always continue to make art of her own in the hopes of advancing her skill and creativity.

Apparel Artist of the Month

Kamn is an independent artist who grew up in Sicklerville, New Jersey and graduated College May 2018.

  • Congratulations Kamn Thomas for receiving College Collections first ever “Apparel Artist of the Month” award for February 2019.  Kamn has been an enthusiastic member of the CC community since it was a concept on paper.  Due to his work ethic and passion for the arts Kamn officially joined the CC team in 2018!

    Kamn joined College Collections because he believed our mission was aligned with ideas he had throughout his college career. He saw a world of great artists who were neglected/overlooked for a long time. He felt these artists needed more avenues for ALL artists to be able to find success. Not just mainstream.

  • His favorite medium is Sculpture because the way you can bring concepts to life off paper into full dimensions.  Kamn loves the freedom in materials, and lawlessness when creating life-size or full dimensional works.

    Kamn felt art was a calling because he was blessed with the gift of a creative mind and able hands. He always found vast inspirations form the Hip Hop Culture, which allowed his imagination to soar.

    Other inspirations for Kamn, include societal constructs and social norms. The idea of opposing constructs, and posing the question: “Why Not?” has inspired a few of his most loved pieces, like “MEN.”  Kamn feels his best pieces revolve around larger messages and are all about alternative thinking.  He wants his artwork to provoke discussion about why we do or don’t allow ourselves to embrace certain types of harmless “otherness”.

  • Thus far, Kamn believes his greatest achievement as an artist is his sculpture “Harmless Danger” featured above.  He created this fashionable sculpture during his final year in college using leather and sewing techniques.  He hopes his feature helps spread some innovative ideas and inspire others to create!

    Kamn is currently a kindergarten teacher who loves encouraging the next generation of creative thinkers.  His dream for the future is to be a Universal Designer, with specialties in Fashion and Automotive Aesthetics.
