BFA Painting/Drawing, 2004
David Muller is a fine artist and restaurateur who credits CCA with broadening his perspective of how to approach art as a lifestyle, rather than merely as a career or project.
With his wife, Lana Porcello, also a visual artist, they cofounded Carville Annex, an artist studio and project space in San Francisco's Sunset District. The annex offers a lecture series Sarah Fontaine and Graduate Design alumna Alexis Petty facilitate.
They also established Outerlands, a successful restaurant on the same block as their artist studio, which has been reviewed in the New York Times and included in the San Francisco Chronicle's 17th annual Top 100 Bay Area Restaurants guide. (Pending features include Bon Appetit and Martha Stewart Living.)
