California College of the Arts x 8-bridges – Bridging Art + Education: Navigating the Bay Area Art World
May 25 @ 5:00 pm PDT - 6:00 pm PDT
Each month, 8-bridges highlights the crucial work of a Bay Area nonprofit arts organization. For the month of June, 8-bridges will feature California College of the Arts (CCA). With campuses in San Francisco and Oakland and undergraduate and graduate programs in art, architecture, design and writing, CCA enrolls just under 2,000 students and the Bay Area is home to nearly 9,000 alumni practicing a full spectrum of artistic mediums. Two of our 8-bridges founding members, Jessica Silverman and Chris Perez are among CCA’s esteemed alumni.
On May 25, 2021, Jessica and Chris will sit down with Maria Hemphill of Zlot Buell & Associates, CCA Trustee, to discuss how 8-bridges and CCA’s missions are closely aligned in their support of emerging artists in the Bay Area. Jessica and Chris will talk about their experiences as students at CCA, the importance of art education, as well as the experience of representing and exhibiting CCA alumni and faculty in their galleries. Jessica Silverman Gallery and Ratio 3 both have upcoming shows featuring CCA alumni. Special thanks to Sophia Kinell of Phillips for helping to build the partnership between 8-bridges and CCA.
