To accent your couch, place two 20-inch-square pillows in a matching bold pattern in the corners. Overlap them with two 16-inch pillows in a coordinating solid color. Add one lumbar pillow with a subtle pattern (like a pinstripe) for balanced design.

Based in Oakland, and with another location in San Francisco, the California College of the Arts, a nonprofit and private university, was founded in 1907 by a German cabinetmaker named Frederick Meyer. CCA presents opportunities for degrees in design, writing, architecture and more. Approximately 1,950 students attend both campuses combined. Several clubs surrounding the school’s mission are also offered. Both campuses have a stylish, modern look to them, and the spirit of the artistry is felt just by looking at it.

Frances Scholz and Mark von Schlegell: Amboy Cinema is a collaborative medium in the way that art often isn’t, so there’s something inherently fascinating about art/film projects that bring together an unlikely group of creative people. Such is the case with this premiere of a promising, potentially bizarre horror/sci-fi/literary/musical hybrid directed by artist Scholz and science fiction writer/art critic von Schlegell.

Ezawa is on the fine art and film faculty of the California College of the Arts and recently moved to Oakland after 20 years in San Francisco. He describes enjoying “seeing all kinds of people engaging with the work, especially those who don’t normally make it into an art gallery or museum. Art can be kind of an ivory tower, an elitist discipline, and public art like this broadens the conversation.”

Andrew Kudless may be a professor of architecture by profession, but he finds the title a little limiting. “Architecture has a history of being pretty promiscuous in terms of what we consider part of our discipline,” he says. “Art, science, math, design, finance, and engineering are all embedded in what we do.” As founder of the Oakland design studio Matsys and an instructor at the California College of the Arts, Kudless has long been interested in the slow seep of technology into fine art.

Mia Feuer’s latest installation, Mesh, is, at the time of this writing, disintegrating. Or, more accurately, what’s breaking apart isMesh’s centerpiece: a lumpy, unidentifiable form laid out on the floor of Locust Projects, a gallery in Miami. Suspended above and bound up in straps is a motley assemblage of what looks like chunks of concrete, blocks of crystal formations, plastered-over jugs. At the very top is a bottle of blue liquid, emptying drop by drop via a clear vinyl hose that snakes through it all.

“Comics inspired and sustained me,” the rising junior year at California College of the Arts continued, “especially as I reached adolescence and was forced to come to terms with my own identity in a town that was typically either apathetic or overtly hostile to LGBTQ folk.” But, he added, “Sadly, in none of these or any other comic I could find at the time was there a transmasculine character with a leading story arc.”
