CIVA

In Summer 2016, the Department of Art and Art History received our second Community Initiatives in the Visuals Grant ("CIVA") from the Hearst Foundation. This $200,000 grant funds a variety of activities geared to enriching the artistic environment of the local community during the 2016/2017 and 2017/2018 academic years.  Initiatives supported by CIVA include stipends for students who undertake summer internships as local arts organizations, faculty teaching at local K-8 schools, an on campus summer arts program for local high school students and acquisition of contemporary Bay Area art for the de Saisset Museum.
