Shaping CulTurE

California College of the Arts educates students to shape culture through the practice and critical study of the arts. The college prepares its students for lifelong creative work and service to their communities through a curriculum in art, architecture, design, and writing.

Dear Friends, In our mission statement, we say we teach our students to have a greater capacity for lifelong creative work and service to their communities. This is a challenge given an economic context in which the shape of creative, meaningful work is being radically reconfigured. California College of the Arts is committed to an education through the arts that gives our graduates the capacity to work in ways they find personally fulfilling while forging significant connections to their communities. But that’s not enough. We also want our students to shape culture—to become effective, creative individuals who also understand that they work within a larger, social context. That is our ambitious educational agenda. And while our goal is ambitious, it is also attainable. In this and previous issues of Glance, you have read about how our alumni are making their marks. Architect Charly Wittock, profiled in this issue (page 11), is designing museum installations, commercial buildings, and private homes around the world. Also profiled is Orfeo Quagliata (page 10), who is making an international impact on the design world. If you read “Awards & Accolades” (page 16) or the news on our website (, you will realize that our students do not wait for graduation day to start shaping culture. They are entering and winning design contests sponsored by industry leaders and national professional organizations. They are applying for and receiving fellowships and residencies from national foundations. They are published authors and accomplished artists with gallery representation. They are working in the community, bringing art and art making to populations challenged by social and economic conditions. Our alumni and students are fulfilling our mission; their education at California College of the Arts has equipped them for both professional achievement and community engagement. They are helping to understand and shape the culture of the future. We are so very proud of them! Sincerely,

Michael S. Roth President

rECOmbiNaNT WOrld: Media Arts at CCA

by Jeff Hunt

The Media Arts Program is a hotbed of activity these days. From kinetic sculpture to narrative and experimental film, from a new Core class to a faculty feature film workshop, from sound editing to interactive robotics, the program is literally abuzz. Renamed in 2004, the program formerly known as Film/Video/Performance has come to be thought of as part of a much broader arena of expression, a discipline that includes interactive installation, performance objects, and kinetic sculpture. There is still a strong screenbased component, where students do work ranging from fully abstract to more traditional, narrative films. But the new name recognizes an important new idea in contemporary art—that rapid advances in technology have expanded our understanding of what media are and how they can be manipulated.

art + technoloGy The changes in the college’s Media Arts Program are, in part, a response to what’s going on in the larger art world. “Media arts are increasingly visible in both gallery and museum settings,” says Ralph Rugoff, director of the CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts. Rugoff curated the Wattis’s spring exhibition, Irreducible: Contemporary Short Form Video, a survey of new work from the past ten years. Larry Rinder, dean of graduate studies and adjunct curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, comments, “Film, video, and computer-based art have become ubiquitous in today’s art world, often in combination with, rather than exclusive of, work in other, traditional media.” With a screen or a robot demanding a response from the individual before it can continue to perform, interactivity is at the core of what media arts is all about. Program chair Barney Haynes (MFA ’88) recognized the emerging influence of technology in his field. In

the late 1990s, his Interface course introduced concepts like robotics and programming. Today, courses such as Recombinant Media and Emphasis Fabrication give students the opportunity to explore interactive machinebased art. During spring semester 2005, students in Recombinant Media collected biological data and manipulated it in such a way that it could be seen, heard, and even felt. “Recombinant Media is about electronics and programming—hooking up sensors so you can monitor heart rate or the temperature of the human body,” Haynes says as he sits in the Hybrid Lab, the central nervous system of the Media Arts Program. To one side is a semicircle of iMacs equipped with ProTools sound interface boxes. The other side of the lab is a makeshift tech museum—a stack of old CRT monitors, colored wire, little metal plates topped with circuits, diodes, spools of film, a pile of what looks like amputated robot limbs. In Emphasis Fabrication, the focus is kinetic sculpture. Erin Elliot, a third-year student with an individualized major centered around performance and installation, has found art and technology courses such as this to be a natural fit for her varied goals. Elliot says, “I plan to use the skills I learn in the Media Arts classes not only to document my performance and installations, but also to explore ways of using these media in nontypical, performative ways.” The Media Arts faculty bring an unusual set of skill to the program. Consider Donald Day, chief engineer at RGB Spectrum, a computer programmer who came to his profession first as an artist, which gives him a valuable perspective. Or Todd Blair, a machinist and vital part of San Francisco’s Survival Research Laboratories. Day and Blair coteach Recombinant Media and Emphasis Fabrication with Haynes, who began as a painter, moved into video art, and now makes interactive installations and kinetic sculpture.

“We We want people to start W thinking about interactivity and nonlinearity right off the bat.” —Barney Haynes


Changes in First-Year Program Proof of the influence of media arts is found in a fundamental change in the college’s Core curriculum. Beginning this fall, Visual Dynamics 4D will be required for all undergraduates. Representatives of many programs were brought together to develop the new course, but the increasing scope of media arts was a huge factor in the makeover. First-Year Cochair K. C. Rosenberg says, “The class will address the collaborative nature of making. And not just that, but interactive and media literacy qualities also.” “We want people to start thinking about interactivity and nonlinearity right off the bat,” Haynes agrees. “We’re also going to have a production component, and it’s almost criminal to not have a class that teaches media literacy.” The new Core concept was tested in fall 2004 in associate professor Mie Preckler’s Visual Dynamics course, in which students were tutored by a representative of Pixar Animation Studios’ Pixar University. The students spent a total of 20 hours at the company’s Emeryville campus, writing, shooting, and editing short videos. Pixar, in partnership with Walt Disney Pictures, has been responsible for producing some of the most inventive Hollywood features of recent years, including Toy Story and The Incredibles. At Pixar, students were given the tools and some training, then more or less let loose to create. “The class mirrored the Pixar philosophy of using technology to its fullest, but concentrating on the most important aspect of filmmaking: storytelling,” says Michael Thompson, a second-year graphic design student. 4

Time-Based Arts Whether used to tell stories or create visual and aural expressions, film and video are still the backbone of the program. “Film has a tactile, seductive quality,” says Haynes. “You can touch it, you can scratch it, stuff that appeals to artists.” Fourth-year student Erica Willis works mostly in experimental film. A transfer student from Columbia College Chicago, Willis appreciates the way the CCA program allows her to bring various genres into her mediabased work. “Being in an environment that welcomes all genres, you come across various systems, structures, and theories that can eventually form a new hybrid,”

Angela Milash, Desirable Uncertainty of the Noise Plane, 2004 Painting with speakers

Willis says. “This environment allows for collaborating and melding of media with the support of extremely knowledgeable instructors and staff.” Filmmakers Lynn Marie Kirby and Jeanne Finley, for instance, bring a sense of experimentation as well as conceptual rigor to the program. Kirby works in virtually every time-based medium, including film, video, performance, sound art, and installation. Finley works in installation and documentary, in addition to her experimental video work. It’s a blending of approaches that offers students a great sense of freedom in their work—and an approach that encompasses sound as well as visual images. “All the classes have a sound component in them,” says Haynes. “We think about sound equally with the visual. Sound conveys subtle meaning, much like color with painting.” That’s where Richard Beggs’s Sound for the Moving Image course comes in. Beggs (MFA Painting ’67) is an industry giant, having done sound for such films as Francis Ford Coppola’s Apocalypse Now, Sophia Coppola’s Virgin Suicides and Lost in Translation, and Spike Jonze’s Adaptation. Students in Beggs’s course learn a mix of technical skills, recording and editing sound, and sound theory. “People can be manipulated and affected,” Beggs says, “and not be conscious of why or how that’s happening to them. Sound goes deeper into some area of response that we don’t know much about.” In addition to Beggs, the CCA program is attracting other big names in the field, such as Rob Epstein, who

made the well-known documentaries The Times of Harvey Milk and The Celluloid Closet. A two-time Academy Award winner, Epstein will teach directing as a visiting artist in fall 2005. As the program ends its first year under its new name, Haynes reflects: “The time-based arts such as film and video have always been cross-disciplinary and collaborative. Cinema has always embraced new technologies. Within Media Arts, we are following that model. In addition to developing our own program, we are working with other programs to create a curriculum that gives students the tools to create artwork that reflects the potential of the information age.”

Extreme digital Video CCA alum Rick Schmidt (MFA Film ’71) is an award-winning independent filmmaker. He is also the author of Feature Filmmaking at Used-Car Prices (Penguin Books, 2000) and Extreme DV (Penguin Books, 2004), considered bibles in the world of indie film. For over a decade, Schmidt has taught film/video workshopsin which participants produce a full-length feature in only ten days. One such workshop was held at California College of the Arts this past January. Nine faculty members from various programs—none of them filmmakers—completed a feature-length video using Schmidt’s techniques. One of the participants was Andrew Dunbar, adjunct professor in the Architecture Program. “The team effort and the fact that we had only ten days to conceptualize, shoot, learn Final Cut Pro, and edit really galvanized the group,” Dunbar says. The result was Mine, a 78-minute video collaboration featuring pairs of speakers telling each other’s stories. “Rick asked us to look for the most interesting stories in our lives,” Dunbar reflects. “By using other people to tell your story, we felt the stories themselves became central to the whole experience.” Schmidt will lead another feature workshop at California College of the Arts in June 2005, a 15-day, 3-credit course organized through the Extended Education Program.

WhiTE CubES + Gray arEaS: Curating Contemporary Art


Not the traditional museum studies curriculum, the MA Program in Curatorial Practice emphasizes practice — through creative partnerships, international perspectives, and development of projects beyond the traditional white cube of the gallery. The program also serves as a lively forum for discussion of contemporary issues in curating, through ventures such as Curating Now, a symposia series organized in partnership with galleries in San Francisco and Los Angeles. The program graduates its first class in spring 2005. In this issue of Glance, we meet some of the people who are involved with the program and look behind the scenes of the first graduating exhibition at New Langton Arts, an independent art space in San Francisco.

Praxis Made Visible: Notes From an Exhibition by Natasha Boas

The “practice” in “curatorial practice” comes to the fore in the second year of the CCA program. During this year the students perform a practical application of their first year of theoretical studies, which included courses on art history, curatorial models, professional development, the history of exhibition making, and writing for curators. The class works together to conceive, develop, and present an exhibition, with an accompanying catalog and public programs. This European model of student group curation—the class of 2005 includes nine student-curators—is unprecedented in the American university and art college system but has proven successful in curatorial studies programs such as those at the Royal College of Art (London) and De Appel (Amsterdam). Often complex and challenging, the process of developing the exhibition collaboratively has been a lesson in group dynamics and has provided a forum for curatorial debate. The students engage in every aspect of exhibition production, from managing the budget and fundraising, to liaising with artists and galleries, to overseeing marketing and catalog design. In effect, the group takes on the roles of a professional gallery staff, negotiating and articulating ideas, prioritizing tasks, and working as a team to bring the exhibition into fruition. Dean MacCannell’s book The Tourist: A New Theory of the Leisure Class (UC Press, 1999) — read in the first-year art history and theory course — was a seminal text for the class of 2005. Early on, the students agreed to work through ideas of leisure, from the formal to the social to the political. During fall 2004, they gave presentations on artists they thought should be included, which resulted in discussions about specific works and curatorial focus. This included an ongoing investigation of the relationship between tourism and leisure, and how the exhibition should frame both terms.


Using a class blog and generating working lists of words and concepts in relation to proposed artists, the students approached a final focus for the show. At one stage, the exhibition appeared “too much about travel and melancholia,” and at another it had “too much emphasis on elsewhere.” The concept of leisure in relation to San Francisco became critical, as did consideration of the gallery as a site of leisure. Finally, three subgroups of students decided on specific artworks, their availability, and their practicality in relation to budget and gallery placement. After hours of heated debate and from an initial list of over 60 artists, the final artist list and curatorial thesis was agreed upon in early January, five months after the first class conversation took place. The resulting exhibition, Downtime: Constructing Leisure, is on view from April 13 to May 14 at New Langton Arts, 1246 Folsom Street, San Francisco. The exhibition features 11 cross-generational artists from Canada, England, France, Mexico, Slovenia, and the United States who address physical and social structures associated with pastimes, tourism, and retreat. Several of the artists were commissioned to produce site-related or socially engaged projects, including Bay Area artists Josh Greene and Melinda Stone. The exhibition presents the work of Bureau d’études (France), Luis Jacob (Canada), and Jonathan Hernández (Mexico) for the first time on the West Coast. A fully illustrated catalog with three contextual essays, an interview with Dean MacCannell, and artists’ pages is available for sale. natasha boas is a independen t curator and an adju nct professor in the Ma Program in curatorial Practice. she worked with the class of 2005 throughout the process of developing the exhibition.

PersPectiVe: by roopesh sitharan “Curator” is a strange word. I never knew such a word existed until I was involved with an event in 2004 at Petronas Gallery in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The curator was organizing an event called “The Use of Technology in Art Creation.” It was my first encounter with a person in such a position. At that point, I was very much involved with the electronic art practice that eventually led me to California College of the Arts. It was my intention to become an engineer when I was in high school, but I was assigned multimedia for my studies instead. There is a saying that goes, “Happiness is found not by gaining what you want but making the best of what you get.” Keeping that in mind, I started my venture into the realm of multimedia. Technology is a central focus for Malaysia as it tries to achieve the goal


of becoming a modern and developed country by the year 2020. Multimedia is one component. As I was going through my early school years, we were bombarded with the massive outside influence of technology. This allowed interventions into our lifestyle and culture. New modes of communication and interaction emerged. A repercussion from that: I was working on www.uploaddownload. org, a project that got people around the region to come together online to collaborate and create work addressing issues of nationality and identity. At the time, I was working as a tutor for Multimedia University in Malaysia. With this project I was subconsciously taking on the role of a curator. The project raised many critical questions about the role of a curator within the practice of new media, especially in the context of the Southeast Asia

region. The project began in 2003 and was exhibited at Fukuoka Asian Art Museum, Fukuoka, Japan; Petronas Gallery, Malaysia; Thailand New Media Festival 2004; and Raffles LaSalle International Design School Gallery, Thailand. California College of the Arts together with the Asian Cultural Council was open enough to accept and support me in my work. Being here has been a learning experience, official and unofficial. I realize now that Malaysia does lack curators, especially in new media. It is exciting to see the practice evolving and being professionalized. I am eager to see the outcome, as I hope to apply what I learn from the CCA program to Malaysian society. roopesh sitharan will receive his Ma in curatorial Practice in 2006. he was awarded the first Porter Mccray fellowship from the asian cultural council for the 2004–5 academic year.

KaTE FOWlE: Beyond the Gallery Trained as a painter at the Norwich School of Art and Design, then as a curator through the Arts Council of England, Kate Fowle moved from London to San Francisco three and a half years ago to pursue the two loves in her life — her American husband and contemporary art. Before coming to California College of the Arts, Fowle ran a curatorial partnership in London, smith + fowle, that specialized in commissioning contemporary art. Fowle continues to work as an independent curator in addition to cochairing Curatorial Practice with Ralph Rugoff, director of the CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts. In San Francisco her projects have included 17 Reasons (2003) with gallery owner Jack Hanley. Taking art to the streets of the Mission District, the exhibition offered local and internationally known artists a chance to present new work on street corners and in store windows — breaking out of the gallery context to engage with the environment. It should come as no surprise that in the CCA curriculum, Fowle espouses partnerships and expanded approaches to curating. By “creating a broad network and adding a little generosity into the equation, everyone learns faster,” she comments. In their professional development course, Fowle’s students establish relationships with projects and organizations. Through a collaboration with inSite, a project focused on commissioning artistic interventions into the social fabric of San Diego–Tijuana, students have the opportunity to explore the public art process. Further afield, Fowle has developed a partnership with Arts Initiative Tokyo, which hosted first-year students this semester on a research trip to Japan. “By forging collaborations with other organizations, we can start to create an international network,” says Fowle. She has been instrumental, with the support of various funders, in bringing over 20 speakers and visiting faculty from overseas in the past year, including Midori Matsui (Japan), Manray Hsu (Taipei), Mami Kataoka (Japan), and Santiago Sierra (Mexico). As if all this were not enough to keep Fowle busy, she also publishes frquently in her field. She is a contributor to What We Want Is Free by CCA adjunct professor Ted Purves (SUNY Press, 2004), her book on recent architecture in San Francisco is forthcoming from Batsford, and she has begun working on a project to translate texts by contemporary Asian artists and curators into English.

CCA’s Global Face

by Jessica Russell

CCA alumni live and work on every continent except Antarctica. Whether coming to the United States from abroad to study like Charly Wittock, or moving to another country after graduation like Orfeo Quagliata, alumni are using what they learned at California College of the Arts to have a truly international influence on the worlds of art, architecture, and design.

orfeo quaGliata Born in 1972 in San Francisco, CA BFA 1999, Wood/Furniture Lives and works in Mexico other education: Cabrillo College, College of Marin current occupation: Industrial designer; founder, Phuze ( influences at cca: Chris Deam, Thom Faulders, Barry Katz, Martin Linder

Though he graduated from California College of the Arts with a degree in wood/ furniture, orfeo quagliata initially spent four years as an industrial design major. “I liked ID but got sick of the little tiny plastic parts,” he says. “I wanted to get my hands on bigger materials.” Changing majors was not out of character for Quagliata; in fact, he chose CCA because of its diversity of programs. “I didn’t want to specialize in any one thing. I wanted to learn as much about every possible material as I could. I took classes in ceramics, paint, photo, glass, every single class I could. It took longer than I thought [it would] to get out, but now I can design anything.” Quagliata became a successful designer while still in school, selling his glass and jewelry designs to private collectors and studying with furniture designer and architect Chris Deam. By the time he graduated with high distinction, crystal company Nouvel Studio had taken notice. With their encouragement, Quagliata moved to Mexico City in 2000 and founded Phuze, a glasswork collaboration with Nouvel Studio. Phuze’s designs include glass jewelry, flatware, vessels, furniture, lighting, and sculpture.

In the factory by 5 a.m., Quagliata spends his days developing prototypes, contacting clients, and meeting with architects. Nights are spent drawing and reading contracts. “Designing is only 5 percent of my time in the real world,” he says. Quagliata hopes current students remember to enjoy their time in school, bend the rules, and design what they want before they have to go out in the real world. His newest projects include a jewelry line and the design of a restaurant in Mexico City. Phuze was recently featured in Metropolitan Home’s 2004 “Design 100” issue, and the products can be found at stores such as the SFMOMA Museum Store, Neiman Marcus, and the Bon Marché. Says Quagliata, “The recognition doesn’t hurt.” charly Wittock has the alphabet to thank for his successful architecture career. At 17 he left Brussels to windsurf in Hawaii, but after two years his parents wanted him back in school. While registering for the University of Hawaii he scanned the alphabetical list of majors and picked the first one that sounded laid-back. “I had friends in Brussels studying architecture. They were always at the café hanging loose, so I thought I’d have a lot of time to windsurf. I realize now I chose a very busy profession. I’ve never windsurfed again.” Wittock transferred from Hawaii to California College of the Arts, drawn by the college’s faculty of practicing architects and the interdisciplinary, art school setting. After graduating at the top of his class, he worked with architect Mark Horton for two years before entering the master of environmental design program at Yale. While at Yale, Wittock took a leave of absence to lead the expansion of the Bibliotheca Wittockiana, the bookbinding museum founded by his father in Brussels. The project opened the doors for him to start his own firm, CW Architects. It’s midnight in his Brussels office as Wittock describes a typical day at CW Architects. His day often begins before the sun comes up and ends late into the night. Wittock calls himself a workaholic and perfectionist but is quick to point out that it isn’t all about work. Each night he eats dinner with his two children and puts them to bed, but then it’s usually back to the office. He also cooks a pasta lunch for his staff almost every day, explaining, “My mother was Italian, and it’s important for me to share my love of good food with my staff and take time out to speak about life and projects.” Reflecting on his time at the college, Wittock says, “CCA faculty are doing interesting things with their lives, and that’s inspiring to students. It gave me the courage and guts to do what I do today.” His firm has produced a diverse body of work in locations around the world, including an artist installation for the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York (with Lee Mingwei ’93), a home for California author Alice Walker, and a café in Brussels.

Scholarship Students

by Ashley Lomery

Very special thanks go to all of the alumni, friends, and parents who made a gift last spring in support of scholarship at California College of the Arts. Almost $18,000 was raised for the Architectural Studies, Design, Fine Arts, and Collegewide Scholarships. Below are profiles of the eight students who benefited from your generosity. Many are graduating in 2005. Their education would not have been possible without your support.

colleGeWiDe scholarshiP 1. Joseph Del Pesco MA, Curatorial Practice, 2nd year Joseph Del Pesco earned a BFA in graphic design at the Savannah College of Art and Design and went on to open his own galleries in Portland, then Minneapolis. The Collegewide Scholarship has encouraged him to do his best work, Joseph says. Through the program, he has prepared to take on projects such as the one awaiting him after graduation—curating an exhibition of public art proposals at the Rooseum in Malmö, Sweden. 2. Dan shafer MFA, Design, 2nd year After graduating from Western Washington University, Dan Shafer moved to San Francisco and worked as a freelance designer. He chose to pursue graduate study at CCA because of its emphasis on leadership and innovation. A presentation he attended with

Lucille Tenazas, cochair of the MFA Program in Design, encouraged Dan to look at design in new ways. Dan would like to teach and maintain his own design business, following the model of CCA faculty who are design professionals. 3. Paige taggart BFA, Visual Studies, 3rd year Paige Taggart’s family encouraged her interest in art from a young age. The Healdsburg, CA, native came to CCA after studying at City College in San Francisco. Paige began by studying jewelry/metal arts, but her love of art history won out, and she changed her major to visual studies. Paige appreciates the stimulating atmosphere at CCA. Receiving the Collegewide Scholarship has meant a lot, she says, as she could not attend without that support. After she graduates, she would like to travel and work for a museum or art gallery.

Program News neW bfa ProGraM focuses on coMMunity arts As an institution with its roots in the Arts and Crafts movement, California College of the Arts has a nearly 100-year history of educating “artist citizens” who are committed to working in their communities. Beginning in fall 2005, the college will be the first art school in the country to offer a BFA in community arts. The new interdisciplinary program will focus on community-based arts theory and practice, with an emphasis on service learning, civic engagement, and diversity issues. The curriculum includes studio coursework, courses in arts administration, and a required internship. The program will draw on the extensive resources of the CCA Center for Art and Public Life, which creates community partnerships based on creative practice that serve the college and the diverse population of Oakland and San Francisco. “In the last ten years, art practice has changed considerably,” comments Sonia BasSheva Mañjon, director of the Center for Art and Public Life. “While at one time being an artist meant a more solitary way of life, many artists today are seeking direct involvement with their communities. By lending the skills and knowledge of their professions to community organizations, service providers, cultural institutions, and government agencies, they are active agents for social engagement and change.”

Mfa ProGraM eMbraces neW Genre Beginning in fall 2005, the MFA Program in Fine Arts will include students working in the area of social practices. This genre incorporates art practice as diverse as urban interventions, utopian proposals, guerrilla architecture, “new genre” public art, social sculpture, project-based community practice, web-based interactivity, service dispersals, and street performance. Artists who work in this genre often create their work together with an audience or propose critical interventions within existing social systems. California College of the Arts has long fostered artists whose work encompasses such social practices, from collaborative projects by Harrell Fletcher ’93 and Jon Rubin ’93, developed while they were graduate students, to CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts exhibitions and programs such as Marina McDougall’s Utopia Now! (2001) and Ted Purves’s Generosity Projects (2002). Social practices are increasingly prevalent in the contemporary art world; their art historical legacy includes the work of the Situationist International, happenings, Brazilian neoconcrete artists, and feminist performance art. The formation of this concentration within the MFA Program in Fine Arts will allow our students to reflect on and contribute to this important development in international cultural practice. Andrea Fraser will be the inaugural Social Practices Distinguished Visiting Artist during fall 2005.

Awards & Accolades Ann Morhauser ’79 reports that two pieces in her Shell Series will be on permanent display at the new Luce Foundation Center for American Art, Smithsonian American Art Museum, scheduled to open in 2006 in Washington, DC. Morhauser is a CCA trustee and the owner and president of Annieglass, a glass design and production firm based in Santa Cruz, CA. In January the California state legislature recognized adjunct professor Thomas Wojak ’92 for his work with the Vallejo Main Street Program, dedicated to revitalizing downtown Vallejo, CA. The W.O.R.K.S, a screen printing studio founded by Wojak in 1972, relocated to Vallejo in 2002 from San Francisco. Wojak and his companion, Misty Youmans ’96, built the first live/work studio in downtown Vallejo. Graphic design alumni Yoshie Matsumoto ’03, Melissa Tioleco-Cheng ’02, and Robert Williams ’03 were awarded a $50,000 grant from Sappi Fine Paper North America for their entry in the 2004 Ideas That Matter competition. The team was the top recipient of 18 national winners. They will use the grant to create a communications campaign for Friends for Youth, a Bay Area mentoring program. The short story “Watermark” by writer Melanie Westerberg ’04 was selected for the acclaimed anthology series Best New American Voices. The anthology, to be published by Harvest Books in fall 2005, features student work nominated by writing programs from across the country. First-year student Lauren Stocksdale was among 31 students nationwide whose work—selected from more than 21,000 portfolios—was in a show of Advanced Placement Program artwork on view at the David J. Brodsky Gallery in Princeton, NJ, and the Frist Center for the Visual Arts in Nashville, TN, during 2004–5. Third-year architecture students Joseph Barajas, Michael Boone, Patrick Flynn, and Daniel Robb received the distinction “Design of Note” for their entry to the National AIDS Memorial Design Competition. Their design, Fissure, was a project in the fall 2004 Architecture Studio 3, taught by Hugh Hynes, Keith Plymale, Sandra Vivanco, and Leonardo Zylberberg. The competition, set up to identify an artistic complement to the National AIDS Memorial Grove in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park, drew nearly 200 entries from 21 states and 22 countries. Five finalists and seven Designs of Note were chosen. Third-year industrial design students walked away with all three top awards in a recent national competition sponsored by the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) and the maverick design entrepreneur James Dyson of vacuum cleaner commercial fame. Their winning projects came out of the fall 2004 ID3 Studio, taught by Kiersten Muenchinger and Rick Lewis, which focused on innovation in the design of domestic products. CCA had a remarkable nine student finalists in the competition, which was open to all NASAD schools. Brandon Warren took grand/first prize, Isamu Yoda took second prize, and Christine Miller and Jennifer Olsen took third prizes. Warren moved on to represent the United States in the international phase of the competition.

hugo steccati Hugo Steccati, accomplished commercial and fine arts photographer, passed away on September 9, 2004, at the age of 88. A Bay Area native, Steccati received a BA in secondary art education from California College of Arts and Crafts (now California College of the Arts) in 1938. After graduation he received his first big break doing caricatures of famous people in the news for the San Francisco Chronicle Magazine. In 1940 he began teaching art at Antioch High School and summer school photography classes at Mills College. In the summer of 1941, he studied with Fernand Leger. Steccati served in the U.S. Navy as a First Class Specialist Photographer during World War II. In 1945, after the war, he formed Stone and Steccati Photographers in San Francisco with Dean Stone ’40. In 44 years as a partner in the advertising and product photography firm, Steccati worked with many prominent clients and designers. He photographed individual portraits of Harry Truman, Dwight D. Eisenhower, and Ronald Reagan before retiring in 1990. But for Steccati, retirement was an elusive concept. He soon began pursuing fine art photography. Using in-camera multiple exposure to create photographic images became his favorite method and fine art photography his passion. His photographs were exhibited at the Tokyo Museum of Art (1982–5) and used to illustrate two books published by Shufunotomo, Tokyo. He and his late wife, Alva, a CCA alumna, collaborated on photographs that combined images of her abstract watercolor paintings with his photography. They created a book together, Dem Tag Entfliehen (Munich: Laterna Magica, 1989). Steccati’s work is on display as part of the permanent collection at UCSF Mount Zion Hospital and is featured in numerous private collections. On January 8, more than 270 family and friends assembled at the Oakland campus to celebrate the life of Hugo Steccati. Over 40 of his beautiful doubleexposure photographs were on view in the Oliver Art Center, and a number of guests spoke about Steccati and his love for photography, his family and friends, and the college. His daughter Eve Steccati-Tanovitz ’69 recalled, “Hugo had a deep love for CCA. It was here where he met the love of his life, our mother Alva; where he met the best business partner and dearest friend he could hope to find, Dean Stone; and also where he met that other great love of his life, photography. Hugo never forgot how CCA had changed his life for the better in so many extraordinary ways.” Other speakers included CCA President Michael S. Roth, Hugo’s son Leo Steccati, trustee Tecoah Bruce ’74, ’79, Douglas Sandberg ’78, family friend Susan Landor Keegin, former alumni director Sandra Weber, and the inaugural Hugo and Alva Steccati Memorial Scholarship recipient, Marina Perez-Wong ’04.
