Film students know him as "Rob," or maybe "Mr. Epstein." CCA faculty and administration know him as the college's Film Program chair Rob Epstein. However you know him, Rob's definitely worth knowing! And if you don't believe me, just watch the latest "on air" segment issued by The Advocate, a national magazine that focuses on the political and artistic sides of the LGBT community, in which Rob gives an interview with Advocate reporter Andrew Harmon.

Schein & Schein features antique maps and prints
The students in the Graduate Fine Arts seminar Land Minds / Site Lines, taught by Jeanne C. Finley, took their first field trip of the semester exploring land/walking art. They visited 1435 Grant Avenue (formerly Dupont Street, known as the oldest street in San Francisco) in the North Beach neighborhood, home to the antique book and map retailer Schein & Schein, named after the husband-and-wife proprietors, Jimmie and Marti Schein. Students searched through the drawers and bins and pulled out maps of particular interest.
