Barclay Simpson (1921-2014) was a trustee and generous supporter of CCA for over 28 years. The Barclay Simpson Awards began in 1987 with a generous donation from Barclay and his wife, Sharon. Since its inception, the Barclay Simpson Award has been granted to over 100 students in CCA’s Graduate Program in Fine Arts, helping them finish their degree work and launch their careers.

Each year the award is juried by outside experts who assess the work of second year MFA students and select four winners. The exhibition of the student award winners, and its opening reception, are among the hallmark events of the spring semester. 

Special thanks to this year’s jurors, Alison Gass, Krieger Family Director at ICA San Francisco, and Claudia Schmuckli, Curator in Charge of Contemporary Art and Programming at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.
