California College of the Arts: Capp Street Project Archive
The California College of the Arts has contributed nearly 8,500 images of contemporary art to the Artstor Digital Library.
Two collections in Artstor — the Capp Street Project Archive and the Contemporary Art Project — provide an extensive view of contemporary art, both American and international. Capp Street Project (CSP), named for the San Francisco address where it originated, was founded in the early 1980s. Artists were awarded residencies that culminated in the creation of site-specific installations. CSP Archive represents the work of more than 50 artists and cooperatives from 1984 through 1994 in comprehensive views of approximately 70 installations. The CSP Archive received support for digitization from a NEA grant.
The California College of the Arts (CCA) was established in 1907 by the German cabinet maker Frederick Meyer, who aspired to integrate art, design, and craft as inspired by the Arts & Crafts Movement. With campuses in San Francisco and Oakland, CCA promotes an interdisciplinary approach and the integration of study and practice with society in the fields of art, design, and writing.
