California College of the Arts (CCA) is pleased to announce that it will assume publication of the online contemporary arts journals Art Practical (AP) and Daily Serving (DS), effective immediately.

This creates the unprecedented opportunity for the two publications to continue to serve a broad community while enabling students to learn professional skills in publishing and to conceive of new audiences for their ideas.

As the publisher, CCA will serve as the fiscal agent for Art Practical and Daily Serving. The two publications have been run as independent entities since their founding in 2006 (DS) and 2009 (AP).

Each will retain its core mission, editorial vision, and autonomy in all areas, including content, staffing, and programming.

San Francisco, Calif., April 15, 2014 -- California College of the Arts will present its 2014 MFA Thesis Exhibition from Thursday, May 15, through Saturday, May 24, at its San Francisco campus (1111 Eighth Street; open daily, 10 a.m.–7:30 p.m.).

The exhibition features works by the 50 MFA students in the graduating class of CCA’s Graduate Program in Fine Arts. It is curated by the writer, critic, and CCA faculty member Glen Helfand. “This year,” Helfand observes, “many of the featured works center on the transforming landscapes of social and technological interaction. In diverse mediums, they are reflections on living with various aspects of overstimulation, social media/mediation, and rapid economic fluctuations.”
