Legacy Print Project
This year, as part of our efforts to honor the Oakland campus as CCA moves toward unification, we are working with alum and faculty emeritus Thomas Wojak to produce an edition of ten prints, each one representing a decade of CCA on the Oakland campus (CCA purchased the Treadwell Estate in 1922 and next year, 2022, marks 100 years on the site). The prints will be featured throughout the year as part of our celebratory programming and proceeds from the sale of the prints will help fund Oakland Campus Legacy programming and projects.
The series, entitled A Garden Campus, features prints that focuses on notable aspects of the college over its one hundred years located on the Oakland Campus with throughlines that highlight the garden nature of the grounds, the significance of craft practices, and the enduring values of the college’s motto “Theory and Practice.” Based on multiple criteria to represent a diverse cross section of the CCA community, we have invited ten current and former CCA faculty artists to design one of the decade prints.
A digital version of the first exhibition of A Garden Campus, which unveiled the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s decade prints, can be found on the CCA Libraries exhibition page HERE.
The first three prints in the series (1920s, 1930s, and 1940s) are currently available for sale as well as pre-sales for a limited number of boxed sets of the entire series. Visit the online store for more info and to purchase.
