Alumni Run Spaces

Our Map of Alumni Run Spaces in the Bay Area is a guide to galleries, project spaces, non-profits, publishers and presses, etc. that are alumni founded or have alumni at the helm.

This list will continue to grow and be an ongoing resource for the community. If we missed a space or a new one is formed, please let us know by emailing

We’d also like to expand this list to include alumni run spaces in other regions. If you run or know of a space, please let us know!

1907 Club

CCA's 1907 Club, named for the year the college was founded, is a new group for alumni who have graduated in the past 10 years. The club was created to engage recent alumni in giving back and staying connected to CCA

Support from members helps the college maintain academic excellence, offer financial aid, attract exceptional faculty, and provide first-rate studios, tools, and equipment. 

Join the Club!

Half-Century Club

The Half-Century Club celebrates alumni who graduated from the college 50+ years ago.

Each year we recognize the newest members with an induction ceremony and encourage all Half-Century Club members from earlier years to attend and celebrate their shared legacy.

Members also have the opportunity to give to the Half-Century Club scholarship, which supports CCA students in need.

Call for CCAC Ephemera

Do you have items you've collected that have the original "California College of Arts and Crafts" or "CCAC" inscribed on them?

We wish to add such ephemera to our archives and would love to photograph any collectibles such as rulers, pencil cases, pennants, etc., you have stored away. (See examples.)

Email to help us document our history.
