Schedule and description of the event:

9:30 AM - 12:30PM - The morning session will address how the teaching of art has changed as reflected by new curricula, mediums, and philosophies at both Cal and CCA. It will open with clips from the two interviews that the Regional Oral History Office has done with Sonya Rapoport and Fred Martin about the education of visual artists in the 1950s. We'll then hear from Tina Takemoto, Mark Thompson, and Guillermo Galindo who are teaching at CCA, and Katherine Sherwood who is Professor of Art Practice at Cal.

12:30 - 2:00 PM- Lunch! We'll have sandwiches and drinks available for $7.

2:00 - 3:30 PM - Deborah Oropallo, Enrique Chagoya, Don Aaron, Brody Reiman, and Richard Shaw will talk and show images about the terrains they crossed to get to what they're doing now.
