ARCADE’s new website, fall 2012 (photo by Scott Thiessen)
Between her responsibilities running a thriving nonprofit and being the single mom of an 11-year-old daughter, Kelly Rodriguez (Architecture 1997) is always working: to support her family, enrich her community, and improve the world at large. And she wouldn't have it any other way.
Rodriguez is the executive director of ARCADE, a Seattle-based nonprofit that promotes multidisciplinary dialogues centering on the integration of architecture, design, culture, science, the arts, and everything in between. It publishes a quarterly magazine, coordinates cultural events for the community, and maintains an increasingly robust web and social media presence.
A glance at ARCADE's calendar reveals a bevy of options offered weekly for anyone interested in design, architecture, and the arts, from lectures by visiting scholars to documentary film screenings and info nights featuring free tutorials on design software.

CCA's Annual Career Expo helps students and alumni launch their careers
“Leadership and problem solving can be applied to every facet in life, and that is what arts training at CCA is. Progressive.”
This is one of several positive comments from CCA alumni who participated in the Strategic National Arts Alumni Project (SNAAP) 2012 survey.
The SNAAP survey results were released in a recent report that details findings from more than 65,000 arts alumni of all ages from 120 institutions in the United States and Canada.

Last month my institution, California College of the Arts (CCA) in San Francisco, selected scientist Amory Lovins to deliver the commencement speech and to receive an honorary doctorate. I'm sure many people in the audience were wondering why CCA, a school of the arts, chose a scientist for this honor. What could a world-renowned physicist say that would resonate with a group of artists, architects, designers, curators, and writers? Plenty, as we all found out.
