The Oakland campus of California College of Arts and Crafts opened in 1922. It is an oasis of trees, ancient succulents, and buildings dense with history at a busy urban intersection. In 2022, the college, now called CCA, closed the campus and moved to San Francisco. These bodies of collagraph prints were my final opportunity to work in the studios. I gathered invasive plant specimens and trash from the grounds, and pressed them into ink and 2 x 3 ft paper as an acknowledgement of place and the surrender to transition and loss.
