Matthew Holland
Died November 10, 2002

Matthew died November 10, 2002 at home. He is greatly missed at CCS, the Detroit Artists Market and the Detroit art community.
The following words are from CCS President Rick Rogers.

By now, many of you have heard of the tragic passing of Matthew Holland. I know that we all share a great sense of loss at the death of someone who meant so much to the College. Matt taught sculpture at CCS from 1987 to 2001. In addition to his dynamism as a teacher and member of the Fine Arts Department, he was a respected leader of the College as a whole. He was elected by his faculty peers to chair the Faculty Assembly, where he served as parliamentarian for an extended period.
For many years, he was the director of the annual Student Exhibition, a gargantuan responsibility that called upon not only his energy and dedication but his judgment and sense of fairness. He also served as chairman of the committee that developed the College's Foundation program and was the program's first director and its first principal lecturer. Today's Foundation Department is the direct outgrowth of Matt's efforts. These are just a few among his many contributions to the College. Above all, I think we will remember his joy in teaching, his commitment to his students, and his deep devotion to his colleagues.
I know we will all miss him, and we join in extending our condolences to his wife Stephanie and the members of their family. We will let you know of memorial arrangements as we learn of them.

 If you wish to write to Stephanie, her address is: 8789 N. Fowlerville Road Fowlerville, MI 48836-9337
