About Barclay Simpson

Barclay Simpson, the namesake of this award, is chairman emeritus of Simpson Mfg. Co. He is chair of the board of trustees of the Berkeley Art Museum and sits on the board of Girls, Inc. of Alameda County.

At CCA he has served in several leadership positions, including advancement committee chair for six years. During that time, he increased contributions significantly, brought on new trustees and new donors, and made leadership gifts that set the stage for the college's expansion in the late 1990s.

Mr. Simpson and his wife, Sharon, have given generously to CCA over the years to support a variety of projects. In 1998 the Sharon Hanley Simpson Library, a critical part of the San Francisco campus, was created using a generous gift from the Simpsons.

The Simpson Library -- much larger and better equipped than the previous facility -- enabled a dramatic expansion in academic resources, including strategic growth in the library collection.

The Simpson name also graces the award-winning Sculpture facility in Oakland, which was completed in 1993.

The couple has also been generous supporters of the Center for Art and Public Life and the CCA Scholarship Fund.

In recognition of his many contributions to the community, Barclay Simpson was awarded an honorary doctorate degree from CCA in 2005.

Work by students enrolled in the undergraduate Graphic Novel Workshop taught by Justin Hall, lecturer in the Writing and Literature Program, and the Graduate Graphic Novel Workshop taught by Matt Silady, associate chair of the MFA in Comics program.

Touring the Social Imaginary

CATALYSTRANSIT is a project organized by Ana Labastida, circulating through the Bay Area’s Casual Carpool from Fruitvale Avenue in Oakland to Fremont Street in San Francisco, that questions how we interpret the mundane moments during commutes.

To participate, or for more information, visit www.catalystransit.com.

This project is part of Touring the Social Imaginary, a series of exhibitions and participatory, public programs across the Bay Area organized by PLAySPACE, that map the social imaginary using research-intensive processes to ask questions about places and the people that inhabit them.
