In honor of the college’s 75th anniversary, CCAC commissioned master carver Georganna Malloff to create and direct the execution of a 33-foot tall carving. The totem pole includes imagery of the college’s history, including bas-relief portraits of the college founders, elements of the college seal, and other vignettes in the college’s history. Malloff directed a group of CCAC students in the four-month project of creating the Celebration Pole. The pole was raised and installed at its current site on campus (as of 2021) in October 1982 at a CCAC open house event, as shown in these photos.
