California College of the Arts

Gallery in The Mission, Dogpatch & Potrero Hill

A generous endowment and whip-smart curators allow the Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts to take on ambitious, sweeping shows, such as the recent exhibition reimagining books as pictures and performances. Shows are also occasionally hosted on campus by PLAySPACE, an experimental exhibition program organized by MFA candidates in the college's curatorial-studies program.
