Centennial Campaign Assures the Future of Culture Dear Friends, This year California College of the Arts marks a historic achievement: 100 years of leadership in education through the arts. This is a time to bring together alumni, students, parents, faculty, trustees, staff, and friends of the college to celebrate our past, to reflect on the hard work and values that brought us to this moment, and to consider CCA’s tremendous potential for the future. Creativity plays an increasingly crucial role in our society, and CCA’s founding ideals have never been more relevant. Artists, architects, and designers have become leaders in a culture that relies on an expansion of both technological innovation and creative content. The San Francisco Bay Area is the locus for much of this development, and CCA’s impressive enrollment growth, influential faculty, and outstanding alumni have made it a leading educational resource in the region. CCA is celebrating its 100th anniversary with its most ambitious fundraising effort to date: the Centennial Campaign. This special $25 million campaign will meet the college’s pressing needs and assure its future. An infusion of contributions into facilities ($10 million), the financial aid endowment ($10 million), and academic programs ($5 million) will put us at the forefront of arts education, preparing our students to shape the future of our culture. As the college’s reputation grows, more of the brightest students nationwide are applying to the school. Since 2000 undergraduate applications have grown by 84 percent. Young people are drawn to CCA because of the quality of the faculty, the small class sizes, the focus on studio-based instruction, and the breadth of disciplines we offer. And it is these very elements of a CCA education that are the most costly. Thanks to the generosity of lead donors to the Centennial Campaign, CCA has raised, as of April 2007, $21.6 million of the $25 million we need. In the coming months, the trustees will continue the Centennial Campaign fundraising effort. We will be opening this special campaign to include all CCA friends and alumni, asking each of you to join in making an investment in the future of culture, in new generations of creative leaders, and in an educational institution that enriches creative practice worldwide. I would like to extend a special thanks to CCA trustee Judy Timken, chair of the Centennial Campaign. Her leadership has been central to our success. And many sincere thanks to the campaign donors who have become our partners in this pivotal moment in the 100-year history of one of the best art schools in the country.

Great teachers live on through their students, as artistic traditions are kindled and kept alive. CCA is full of rich connections with its past, and on the occasion of our centennial, we trace the lines of influence of two important figures in the history of the college who are fondly remembered by current faculty members. Pillars of design and the fine arts, respectively, and very different in both temperament and teaching style, Wolfgang Lederer and Jason Schoener worked closely together for decades. Lederer, a graphic designer and illustrator of elegant and impeccably proportioned books, was classically trained in Leipzig, Paris, and Prague—-“more Bach than Mozart,” as one of his colleagues puts it—-and was a man of broad artistic interests. Schoener, a painter with a practical bent and a love of sumptuous color, was always there to encourage his students and make things possible, helping them discover their own paths. Each in his own way shared the aesthetic grounding and commitment to practical skills that is at the heart of a CCA education.

Wolfgang Lederer, a member of CCA’s design faculty from 1941 until 1980 and long the doyen of the department, was an exacting taskmaster. His students learned from him that art was serious work, and if they weren’t in their seats by 8 a.m. he would lock the latecomers out. “He always pushed me beyond what was comfortable,” the San Francisco designer Michael Vanderbyl recalls. Vanderbyl effortlessly made As and graduated with distinction in 1968, but Lederer refused to let him slide by on his talent alone.   He knew Vanderbyl had studied the Swiss typographers and had an affinity for them, so to test his star pupil, “he would pick the absolute ugliest typeface for me to work with.” Yet Lederer was caring as well as supremely knowledgeable. “You just felt the   wisdom there, and the skill and the grace in the way he taught,” Vanderbyl remembers. After Vanderbyl began working in San Francisco, Lederer had him come back every year for a show-and-tell with his students. And in 1973, after Vanderbyl had started his own business, Lederer offered to have him teach a beginning class in graphic design. The rest, as they say, is history. With a rigor and sense of artistic integrity that are as strong as his mentor’s, Vanderbyl has inspired generations of students. Vanderbyl says he likes the “unbridled enthusiasm and fear and excitement” of his novice pupils. “Designers get bogged down in what it takes day to day to perform this task.” Teaching at his alma mater once a week is a salutary reminder of why he loves what he does so much. “People ask me if I get my best ideas from my students, and I say, ‘Never.’” But teaching gives him new insights. “You talk in great detail about things that you do intuitively, and it helps you find out more about yourself. It makes me a better designer.” At a panel in Los Angeles last fall, Vanderbyl found himself discussing the profession with a former student and now CCA colleague, Eric Heiman (Graphic Design 1996). Heiman, who spent a productive semester in Vanderbyl’s thesis class, says he has always been impressed at how down-to-earth and open Vanderbyl is in person, despite his formidable reputation, and how the energy he puts into teaching has never waned. Heiman’s thesis project was a circuitous journey that took the single word play as its point of departure. It started at a bar where he liked to hang out, and with the

[ 3 ]

reflection that while he was there enjoying himself, someone else was at work. So he sought out the bartender and asked him where he went to unwind, photographing him at work and then at play, which led to companion portraits of a string of other people.

Dan Covert), Never Sleep, 2007

He had started out wanting to make a film; Vanderbyl insisted, however, that he should make a book and came up with the accordion format that Heiman eventually employed to present the material. Sometimes Heiman wanted to challenge his professor, but he was always forced to concede that Vanderbyl was right. He says he came away with a sense of critical scrutiny that guides him in both his work and his teaching. “I hated it in the moment, when I put my hand to the fire, but that was the stuff that I remember the most. I do it with my own students, too,” he says. A case in point is Andre Andreev (Graphic Design 2005), “a great form maker,” says Heiman, “who could have coasted along on his talent.” Andreev snagged a job with MTV right out of college and now works in its On Air department, and he says he is grateful Heiman expected so much of him. He marvels at how thoroughly Heiman conceptualizes his work, carrying his overall message down to the tiniest, barely visible element. “Making things look pretty is definitely not enough,” says Andreev. “He digs deeper. He’ll take a concept and execute it on a macro and   micro level.” In his classes with both Heiman and Vanderbyl, Andreev absorbed that “design is a way of thinking, as opposed to a way of making. With the thinking that we acquired at CCA, we can make whatever we want. The medium is subservient to the idea.” Andreev moonlights on evenings and weekends with his friend G. Dan Covert (Graphic Design 2004) on dress code, the design company they cofounded, and they are also putting together a book titled Never Sleep about the transition between student and professional life. True to their billing, the two tireless friends are now team teaching at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn and continuing to spread the ideas they first discovered at CCA. Andreev sums up succinctly what he owes to Heiman: “He taught us that no detail is small enough to overlook.” And perhaps it is not surprising that Vanderbyl describes his debt to Lederer in almost the same words. It may take inventive new forms, but a tradition of excellence will inevitably reproduce itself.

[ 4 ] glance spring 2007

From 1953, when he first arrived from Ohio, until 1996, when he taught his last class, Jason Schoener was a warm and comforting presence and a constant source of strength and support on CCA’s fine arts faculty. Charles Gill (Painting 1955), a painter and printmaker whose own history with CCA spans 60 years, dating back to the Saturday classes he took as a teenager, happened to be there on the balmy afternoon when Schoener first drove onto the Oakland campus with his wife, Virginia, and “at least one cat in the back of their station wagon.” As Gill remembers it, he was hanging out with his friends Robert Bechtle and Bob and Penny Dhaemers (who would also make their mark on the Bay Area art scene), and they gave the Schoeners some pointers on finding a place to live. In 1966 Schoener hired Mary Snowden, who is now chair of CCA’s Painting /   Drawing Program, and she still remembers how welcomed she felt as a junior member of the faculty. She had left a much better paying job at UC Berkeley, where as a recent graduate she was at the bottom of the hierarchy and didn’t even rate a mailbox. At CCA she was treated as an equal, and both Schoener and Lederer took the time to sit down with her and give her helpful advice on what she should be including in her classes. One cardinal principle she took from Lederer, she recalls, was always to tell students the purpose of an assignment and why they would find it useful later. From Schoener she learned that the students came first. Schoener would set up a series of rules for procedure, but then, as the situation called for it, he would bend and twist them to best serve the case at hand. “Jason was a stand-up guy,” remembers Gill, who became Schoener’s colleague when Schoener invited him to teach printmaking in 1959. “He went to bat for all of us. He helped us do what we wanted to do.” If anyone had a good idea, Schoener was willing to facilitate it, and he also had a lot of good ideas of his own. He instituted the Methods and Materials course, which covered the fundamentals of the artist’s craft, and he invented a course called Artists’ Business and Practice, where

[ 5 ]

students learned how to organize an exhibition of their own work, including finding a space and managing the installation. “If you had a new idea, he was very receptive to it,” says Snowden, who remembers Schoener acquiring equipment for spray painting and airbrushing well before graffiti became a recognized art form. “He would say, ‘Add that to the curriculum, and let’s try that.’”

Clockwise from top left: Mary Snowden, Katrina, 2005; Charles Gill with a student in the printmaking studio, 1986; David Huffman, 2006

Thanks to the steady influence of Schoener and Lederer as well as its other eminent faculty, CCA maintained a reputation for imparting concrete skills to its students. In the laissez-faire atmosphere of the countercultural 1960s, when academic standards often fell by the wayside, students here could be sure they were getting something for their money. “We were known for having really solid classes,” Snowden says. “Instructors would insist that the students learn about color, composition . . . how to use your materials. When you left, you really knew how to draw.” And when the school ran into financial straits in the late 1960s, it was dedicated professors such as Schoener, Lederer, and Marty Streich (an able administrator and a leading light in the Metal Arts Program) who kept CCA going, sometimes by teaching two classes at once in adjoining rooms. David Huffman (Painting / Drawing 1998) says Schoener helped him take a pivotal step in his career—a semester in New York in 1984—during his undergraduate years at CCA. Schoener suggested that Huffman should apply to a studio program in Manhattan, made sure he got on the short list, and even came to visit him after he was accepted. The art scene there was electric. He met Jean-Michel Basquiat and Frank Zappa, and he once wandered into a Keith Haring show where Andy Warhol was in attendance “with his pretty white pants and pale skin and strange gaze.” “Jason opened me up to painting,” Huffman recalls. “I was going in a different direction and he really pushed me.” Huffman’s style wasn’t one that Schoener himself espoused, but he recognized and encouraged it. “He would just ground you—he wasn’t ever anxious. He was like a rock.” And now, as part of the   Painting / Drawing faculty at CCA, Huffman can pass the torch along, providing   the same kind of support and encouragement to the next generation of artists.

Michael McClure, Bob Dylan, and Allen Ginsberg, North Beach, San Francisco, 1965

michael mcclure The poet and playwright Michael McClure began teaching in the Writing and Literature Program in 1963, and his tenure at CCA is the longest of any faculty member. Michael received his BA from San Francisco State University. He burst onto the literary scene at the age of 23   during the infamous Six Gallery reading of 1955, in which he read alongside Allen Ginsberg and Gary Snyder. He has written more than 30 volumes of poetry and 20 plays; his books include Scratching the Beat Surface: Essays on New Vision from Blake to Kerouac (Penguin, 1994), Huge Dreams: San Francisco and Beat Poems (Penguin, 1999), and Touching the Edge (Shambhala, 1999). He has received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Poetry Association and two Village Voice obie Awards for playwriting, and he has earned grants and fellowships from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. Recently he has been performing and recording with Ray Manzarek, former keyboardist for the Doors. In 2004 UC Berkeley’s Bancroft Library acquired Michael’s journals from the years 1956–2002. His last term at CCA was winter 2006.

Betsy Davids began her career at CCA in 1968 after receiving her undergraduate and graduate degrees from UC Berkeley. During her nearly 40 years at the college she has taught in both the Printmaking Program and the MFA Program in Writing. She is a book artist and writer—her publications include Dreaming Aloud, Book One (1986) and Dreaming Aloud, Book Two (1989)— and she is also the owner of Rebis Press in Berkeley. Betsy is known in the book arts movement as one of the first artists to switch from letterpress to computers. Her work has been exhibited at both the San Francisco Center for the Book (where she recently cocurated a retrospective of artists’ books) and the Center for Book Arts, New York. Betsy’s work is featured in The Century of Artists’ Books (Granary Books, 2004) and other publications. She will retire following the spring 2007 semester.

Margaret Mackenzie retired after the spring 2006 semester, having taught at the college for 20 years in what is now the Critical Studies Program. She received her PhD in anthropology from the University of Chicago and her undergraduate degree from the University of Auckland, New Zealand. In her teaching, Mackenzie combined her interest in both sacred and secular rituals with a practice of performance and installation art in order to illustrate how social scientists might both view and receive the rituals they study. For her own work in performance art, Margaret won residencies in Europe and addressed controversial topics of war and death. Collateral Damage, one of her installations, displayed dead animals that she had found on the roads of Marin in order to make visible the destruction that we either ignore or are blinded from. She is a registered nurse as well as a medical anthropologist, and her latest research interests address the issue of health education in America, which, she says, wrongly   focuses on the shortcomings of individuals. “It may be time for kindness to replace some of the blaming,” she writes. Margaret’s own kindness is fierce and   will be greatly missed.

John Raeber

Vince Perez completed his MFA at CCA in 1964, after starting his degree at the Universidad de las Américas in Mexico City. He received his BFA from Pratt Institute. He has taught in the Painting/Drawing Program since 1967, serving as chair for a period of time. He works in a wide range of media and formats, from painting to woodcuts, science fiction illustration to medical illustration. His work is in the collections of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., the Legion of Honor in San Francisco, and the Oakland Museum of California, among other important institutions. Spring 2007 will be his last semester at the college.  

John Raeber has juggled his schedule to be in the Bay   Area for his class every Thursday morning since the inception of the Architecture Program more than 20   years ago—not an easy feat for someone with a national consulting practice. Because of his expertise with both   the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Uniform Building Code, his students have been known to see him on c-span testifying before a congressional committee   on a Tuesday and then encounter him in class two days later on Thursday. At one point during his CCA teaching career he was a contributing expert writer to almost two dozen professional publications. He has earned numerous honors, including an unusual dual elevation to fellowship in the American Institute of Architects and the Construction Specifications Institute.   In many ways John’s superb teaching and national stature gave the nascent CCA Architecture Program the technical legitimacy with the accrediting and licens-  ing agencies that allowed it to become the experimental program it is today. Perhaps his greatest legacy is the fact that CCA graduates have a higher pass rate than those of any other accredited school in California on the Architectural Registration Exam. His final term was the spring 2006 semester.

MICHAEL S. ROTH Reflections on the Presidency

We are sad to announce the departure of President Michael S. Roth in   August of this year. He has accepted the position of president at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, his undergraduate alma mater. “That Michael has been offered this prestigious position at Wesleyan is a   tribute to the strength of CCA and what has been achieved in the past seven years,” says Ann Hatch, chair of the Board of Trustees. “His tenure at CCA   has been distinguished by decisive, inspiring leadership and remarkable   achievement. It has been an absolute pleasure working with Michael, and I   wish him all the best.” Highlights of Roth’s tenure include the creation and implementation of a five-year comprehensive strategic plan, expansion of the San Francisco campus, a 38 percent increase in enrollment, and several new academic programs. He will leave the college in a very strong financial position; since 2000 he and the Board of Trustees have raised $15 million in funds for core operations and an additional $21.6 million for new facilities, programs, and endowment. This is three times CCA’s previous fundraising record, which was set in the late 1990s. Roth was a member of Wesleyan’s class of 1978, graduating summa cum   laude and Phi Beta Kappa. He went on to earn his doctorate in history at   Princeton University in 1984 and began his teaching career at Scripps College   and Claremont Graduate University in Claremont, California. In 1987 he   became founding director of the Scripps College Humanities Institute, a   center for intellectual exchange across disciplines, and in 1997 he became   associate director of the Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles. Although he will officially leave us in August, we will see Michael Roth at centennial events in the fall. Here he reflects on some of the most memorable moments of the past seven years.

[ 10 ] glance spring 2007

What event or decision do you think has been the most important for the school during your presidency?

There have been two: reorganizing the college to promote  cross-college and interdisciplinary work. There are no more  schools of Fine Arts, Architecture, and Design at CCA, and this has helped to facilitate work on a collegewide curriculum. The second is the change of the name to California College of the Arts, which has allowed us to clarify our mission and identity to a broader public, particularly beyond the Bay Area.  What is the biggest challenge you faced as president?

The economic and educational necessity of enrollment growth. We decided to become a more robust, two-campus school, and that meant we needed to increase the size of the student body and the number of programs. We’ve done both over the last seven years, and in coming years CCA will open programs in Design Strategy, Film, and Animation. What are some adjectives you would use to describe CCA during your time as president?

Nimble, innovative, inclusive, humane, ambitious.

The great highlight has been teaching the inspirational CCA students  each semester.

[ 11 ]

What is the achievement of which you are most proud?

I am most proud of our expanding applicant pool and of the internationally recognized work of our faculty, our alumni, the Center for Art and Public Life, and the Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts. The development of residential life on the Oakland campus and the collaborative work of our First Year Program have been great additions to the college. In San Francisco, progressing from a building to a campus will ensure a great future to those who create and learn there. Tell us about something that you wanted to do but couldn’t implement and why.

Swim team and equestrian club. No pool. No horses. Convocation. We just couldn’t bring enough students and faculty together in a community event at the beginning of each term. Talk about some of the people you hired who have made a difference at the college.

Susan Avila has built a first-rate advancement department that has reinvigorated fundraising and alumni relations. Ralph Rugoff made an international reputation for the   Wattis Institute during his tenure as director. Larry  Rinder   is a first-rate academic leader, and it was a great boost to bring him back to CCA. Sonia Mañjon has put the Center for Art and Public Life on the map as one of the great commu-  nity arts organizations in the entire nation. And Yves Béhar   is an extraordinary designer, teacher, and departmental leader for Industrial Design.

[ 12 ] glance spring 2007

What advice would you give to students interested in art school?

Learn through the arts to follow your passion, to discover what you really love to do. When you make this discovery, you can acquire the skills to continue to pursue this work in   a way you can build on for the rest of your life. What will you remember as the highlights of your tenure?

Building a board of generous, thoughtful trustees who love CCA and work hard to advance its mission. Developing a   national reputation for the school that will benefit alumni and faculty as they continue to make work that will shape   the culture of the future. Creating partnerships with local arts and community organizations on both sides of the bay, and connecting nationally and internationally with schools   and companies that foster creativity. The great highlight has been teaching the inspirational   CCA students each semester. Any final thoughts on your time at CCA?

While it is difficult to leave, I am very proud of what we— trustees, faculty, staff, students, alumni, and donors—  have accomplished during my time here. CCA’s position in arts education has never been stronger, and interest in   our academic programs, public programs, and exhibitions only continues to grow. I would like to thank the entire   CCA community for the support and collegiality they have shown me throughout my seven years at the college. I   hope that I can bring to Wesleyan the creative spirit and   care for community that I have experienced here.

What are some adjectives you would use to describe CCA during your time as president? Nimble, innovative, inclusive, humane, ambitious.

Program News

new animation program

new graduate program in film

CCA’s new undergraduate Animation Program will admit its first students in fall 2007. The curriculum explores timebased motion and form, combining traditional character animation with a more experimental, interdisciplinary   approach. Students will begin the program by studying   shifting weight, locomotion, characterization, timing, and emotional expression through courses in traditional character animation, drawing, and filmmaking and then later apply these skills to a wide variety of individual and collaborative cinematic experiments in film production, interactive media, motion graphics, narrative storytelling, in-depth character studies, and video. Students will complete numerous projects and, upon graduation, will have a reel of work that will help them succeed in either commercial or noncommercial venues.

Launching in fall 2008, this program will focus on documentary, fiction, and experimental forms, with narrative serving as the common foundation. It is designed and chaired by the Academy Award–winning filmmaker Rob Epstein. Epstein comments, “More than ever, there is crossover and interplay between the modes and methods of narrative documentary filmmaking and those of narrative fiction filmmaking. We will be preparing students to be well versed in both, making the CCA Graduate Program in Film unique. As cinema becomes revolutionized, with the future suggesting interactivity—watching films on cell phones, iPods, HDTV monitors, and movie screens—one thing will remain constant: People still need to know how to tell a story. This will be our primary focus. Also, we will be one of the very few all-digital programs in the country.”

San Francisco is an ideal location for the Animation Program, since the Bay Area is home to many of the world’s best animation studios as well as film studios, 3D effects firms, and advertising houses that work with motion graphics and web animation. Faculty and visiting artists are drawn from many of these companies; program chair Andrew Lyndon and at least one other faculty member come from Pixar Animation Studios. Additional collaborations and internships are being established with several other institutions, many of which will also be working closely with the new Graduate Program in Film.

Epstein will be joined by CCA Media Arts professors Jeanne Finley, Lynn Kirby, and Kota Ezawa along with Visual Studies scholar Federico Windhausen. Other talented industry professionals will teach fiction directing, producing, screenwriting, digital cinematography, editing, and the actor’s craft. Graduates will emerge having created at least four films at a professional level, suitable for submission to major film festivals, museums, and galleries as well as broadcast on television or the Internet. Students will enjoy the benefit of close connections with the San Francisco International Film Festival, Pixar Animation Studios, Lucasfilm / Industrial Light & Magic, the American Conservatory Theater, the Magic Theatre, Apple, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco Cinematheque, the documentary studies program at Stanford University, and the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism.

Scholarship Gifts Touch Lives CCA is very grateful to the many alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends who contributed to scholarships in 2006. Some donors create named scholarship funds to honor family and loved ones, and some make gifts to pooled funds where the generosity of many donors is united to create scholarship awards. Last year, donors gave more than $73,000 to pooled funds. These are awarded by field to students in architectural studies, design, fine arts, and humanities; there is also a Collegewide Scholarship that is available to students in any major. Each gift you give to a pooled scholarship helps promising students pursue their dreams and strengthens the future of our communities.

Camellia M. George Graduate Program in Design Design Scholarship

Camellia chose CCA because “design here is not medium specific; the program fosters critical thinking, writing, and teaching.” Before enrolling, Camellia worked as creative director at Fastback Creative Books, a small Bay Area studio that helped launch the idea of personal publishing. Camellia enjoys the fact that at CCA “there are no concrete divisions between disciplines; people are very inviting and want to engage with anyone in the CCA community.” To scholarship donors, she says, “I couldn’t have attended CCA without the scholarship I was granted. It makes everything I’m doing here possible. I am so grateful to have been given the opportunity to study here—to pursue design in this fantastic environment. Thank you.”

Sean Canty Freshman, Architecture Program Architectural Studies Scholarship

Sean came to CCA from Philadelphia’s Charter High School for Architecture and Design (CHAD). He says, “Everyone here is so outgoing and creative. The faculty are so bright, and it’s obvious that they really care about every aspect of your development. Not just your design, but also your life.” Sean enjoys being able to take a variety of classes, including multimedia and computer design. He has a special interest in public architecture. “Two people sitting next to each other might not have much in common but still, in that shared space, they can connect in a real way. As architects, or future architects, we should be concerned about designing spaces that bridge cultural divides.”

[ 27 ]

David Berezin Senior, Media Arts Program Collegewide Scholarship

David says, “CCA has given me the opportunity to connect with some fantastic faculty—the freedom to seek them out and continue working with them—and the chance to shape my own approach.” With Media Arts senior Jeffery Harland, David opened the student-run Contemporary Gallery on the Oakland campus. After graduation he plans to remain in the Bay Area as an active member of the art community and apply to graduate school. “My scholarship has let me buy supplies and leave school with less debt. That means I can think about graduate school sooner. Scholarship gifts make a big difference in people’s lives; to some it’s the difference between going to school or not.”

Bianca Mondragon Sophomore, Photography Program Fine Arts Scholarship

Bianca always dreamed of art school, and she knew that CCA was the college for her. Here, she says, “art isn’t just a topic. It influences all the academic classes.” She enjoys the greenery and beauty of the Oakland campus. “The photography facilities are wonderful, and the faculty. I’m most interested in color darkroom work—it’s quite a privilege to have access to that. And I love being able to try other art forms here.” Without a scholarship, Bianca would not have been able to come to CCA. “A lot of people are really passionate about what they do. You need that to get through here. For people who have that, scholarships give them the   opportunity to maintain a higher quality of life because they can pursue what they love.”

Naema Ray Sophomore, Community Arts Program / Painting Program Humanities Scholarship

Naema chose CCA for its Community Arts Program. “A friend emailed me the website for the Center for Art and Public Life,” she says, “and I made my decision to attend in a few hours. I love being surrounded by those who share my vision. In Community Arts I have been presented with so many opportunities and experienced so much in only two years.” She has cofounded Through a Child’s Eyes, a nonprofit that brings art and opportunity to young people in Africa. After graduation she will pursue a career in art education. “It is a fact that I would not be here without these scholarships. I appreciate so much what these gifts have allowed me to do. Those who give to scholarships really are allowing me and others to fulfill our aspirations.”

More than 80 percent of CCA students qualify for financial aid; the profiles above represent just a few of the individuals who benefit from scholarship gifts. As the college’s reputation grows, so does enrollment, and CCA needs your help to ensure that all students who qualify for aid receive it. In addition to pooled scholarship funds, CCA offers opportunities to create named scholarships. To make a gift or to learn more about scholarships at CCA, please contact Camille Gerstel, individual giving director, at 510.594.3787 or cgerstel@cca.edu, or use the gift envelope enclosed in this issue of Glance.

One of CCA’s greatest resources is our dedicated faculty—-highly regarded professionals and leaders in their fields.

dan tuttle Architecture San Francisco, California September 11, 2006

Professor emerita dr. ruth boyer died on June 20, 2006, in Ukiah, California, after an extended illness. She taught at CCA for 14 years in the Textiles Program, beginning as a lecturer in 1973, becoming a professor in 1976, and serving as chair from 1981 to 1985. She was a unique teacher, one of the school’s few PhDs at the time, and CCA benefited greatly from her emphasis on both academic and studio work. Her best-known study, on the Mescalero Apache Indian reservation, resulted in the award-winning book Apache Mothers and Daughters.

susan wood, adjunct professor in the Jewelry / Metal Arts   Program, died December 29, 2006, in Oakland after a long bout with cancer. With an exacting work ethic and a rigorous artistic standard, she excelled at all aspects of her craft and instructed at numerous schools and art centers throughout the United States. She taught at CCA for four years until illness forced her resignation in September 2006. She will be remembered for her talents as well as for her   courage, grace, and sense of humor.

Backward Glance

Harold Rosenberg, John Coplans, George Miyasaki, and Wilfrid Zogbaum at a CCA panel discussion event, 1962. At that time Rosenberg was one of the most important art critics in New York; he had been an early champion of Abstract Expressionism and was a close friend of Willem de Kooning. He was in town for an event at UC Berkeley and Miyasaki, the organizer of the CCA panel, convinced him to speak here and waive his usual fee. Miyasaki received his MFA in painting from CCA in 1958 and taught fine arts from 1959 until 1966. Coplans, a prominent painter and photographer, taught briefly at CCA and was one of the founding editors of Artforum magazine, which was inaugurated in San Francisco the same year this picture was taken. Zogbaum, a painter and sculptor, was teaching at this time at UC Berkeley; he died just three years later, in 1965.
