The California College of the Arts is proud to present a robust line-up of public programming to the San Francisco Bay Area. This fall, CCA will have a number of affiliated events for the much-anticipated Global Climate Action Summit, including the official launch of the award-winning Architectural Ecologies Lab, which exemplify the college’s commitment to sustainability. On the frontlines of social justice, CCA presents its Creative Citizenship in Action series that will host two Town Hall discussions and hold an exhibition in the CCA Hubbell Street Galleries in conjunction with For Freedoms—a nation-wide platform for civic engagement, discourse, and direct action for artists spearheaded by artist Eric Gottesman and CCA alumnus Hank Willis Thomas. CCA welcomes Hank Willis Thomas back to campus in October for a week-long residency. This semester also marks the 20th anniversary of the CCA Wattis Institute of Contemporary Arts which will celebrate the occasion with a game show-themed extravaganza with games, prizes, and more. Additionally, CCA continues its Architecture Lecture series, Fine Arts Visiting Artist series, MFA in Writing Reading series, and launches the new “Design Is” series—all of which brings award-winning artists, designers, authors, scholars, and alumni to engage and inspire Bay Area audiences.
