This academic year is a special one here at Cal State Monterey Bay and the Visual and Public Art Department as we celebrate our 25th anniversary! As we continue a number of celebrations and programs to commemorate this milestone, we are pleased to announce our jubilee exhibition, 25@25: A Community of Artists, which will feature 25 years of VPA visiting artists.  

25@25: A Community of Artists will showcase dynamic programming from our Visiting Artist Series.  Each semester, this series features emerging and established figures in contemporary art and community engaged practice by actively seeking out prominent artist scholars to give free, public, on-campus presentations.  Our series creates a forum for engagement and dialogue with our students through artist mentorship, which provides insight into the creative process and artistic practices while also conveying analytical thinking, social responsibility, and skills of communication and community building in relation to both VPA and CSUMB’s mission.  This type of face-to-face engagement is invaluable to our students, and we are excited to organize a first-time exhibition of works by members of VPA’s Visiting Artist Series.
