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.


Fall 2022

We invite you to revisit these events and take a deep dive into the ideas discussed. RRR Vol.5 was organized by the Exhibitions department, and in fall 2022 edited by Liz Godbey and Emilia Shaffer-Del Valle, with original graphics by Anjni Shah.

BFA Senior Thesis Conversations

Seniors share their influences, artwork, 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. In anticipation of these conversations, RRR invited participating seniors to share their influences, artwork, and plans for the future with us.
