Rewind Review Respond (RRR) is an online forum where CCA students reflect on recent events and the ideas that affect their practice, communities, and fields of study.


Spring 2021

We invite you to revisit these events and take a deep dive into the ideas discussed. RRR Vol.2 was organized by the Exhibitions department, and in spring 2021 edited by Katherine Jemima Hamilton and Liz Godbey, with original graphics by Sarah Chieko Bonnickson.

Digital Drawing Room

Meet the MFA Class of 2021

As part of RRR’s mission to be a digital space for students to converse, the work in “Digital Drawing Room: MFA Fine Arts” provides insight into individual graduating MFA students’ work. Written by students in Glen Helfand and Maria Porges’ respective graduate writing seminars, this series of interviews and artist profiles brings the reader closer to the artists and their artwork. Reflections from MFA Fine Arts students on life in art school—at home—provide insight into a year of learning through many crises and small solutions. Without a physical opening for the MFA show with in-person, head-to-head, and heart-to-hearts, the authors provide another avenue for those at home to engage in and celebrate this class's culminating body of work.

BFA Senior Thesis Conversations

Seniors share their influences, artworks, and plans

“BFA Senior Thesis Conversations” are live, virtual events where graduating students from CCA’s Textiles, Photography, Individualized Studies, Sculpture, Glass, Printmedia, Jewelry and Metal Arts, Ceramics, Community Arts, and Painting and Drawing programs publicly share their capstone work. Each event features student presentations, responses from art professionals, and time for discussion. Through this online presentation, we celebrate each student’s dedication to art-making during their time at CCA, and provide a way for family, friends, and the general public to connect with and celebrate student work.
