San Francisco, CA—April 10, 2018—This May, California College of the Arts (CCA) presents its annual Commencement Exhibition—an expansive and interdisciplinary showcase of work by graduating students across all disciplines on the college’s San Francisco campus. Including works by both undergraduates and graduates, the exhibition will feature architecture, design, fine art, screenings of works by students in the college’s Film program, and a reading room where the audience can preview written works ranging from novels to poetry to comics and more. In addition, CCA will award $3,000 to six students to create new, site-specific installations for the exhibition. Winners will be announced in mid-April for the May exhibition.
“The Commencement Exhibition is a terrific moment of pride for all of us here at the college,” says Stephen Beal, president of CCA. “It commemorates the diverse and extraordinary work of our students and brings our community, parents, and neighbors together to celebrate the creative talent that will fuel our society’s future and shape its culture.”
In addition to the exhibition on CCA’s San Francisco campus, select programs—including Fashion Design, Graphic Design, Industrial Design, and others—will hold celebratory events at major arts and design exhibition spaces in the surrounding South of Market, Potrero Hill, and Dogpatch neighborhoods. Partner organizations include the Minnesota Street Project, SOMArts, Heron Arts, Astro Studios, and PCH Lime Lab.
