Recently, two members of our faculty have been in the news, reflecting the amazingly talented people in our community and their passion for making and sharing art.
Norman Moore, neon and light instructor, recently completed a public art project for the Alameda County Arts Commission in collaboration with Nancy Mizuno Elliot, a student in one of his classes. They created a series of windows for the new Castro Valley Library, which just opened to the public.
Jay Bridgland, head of our Flameworking department, was recently profiled in Alameda Magazine, where he has recently set up a new studio and is a driving force in the 2nd Friday Estuary Art Attack open studios.
Jay was also recently named a finalist in the 2010 NICHE Awards, sponsored by NICHE Magazine.
