Capsule 8 is the new fashion concept that minimizing the wardrobe but maximizing the ways of wearing. Starting from the painpoint of people have so many clothes in their wardrobe but a lot of times, they still feel nothing to wear. Capsule 8 will solve this problem by offering the capsule wardrobe concept, which is eight timeless pieces of cloeths that can be mix-matched in more than twenty ways. What's more, the eight items are well selected that are stuitable for the weather of SF Bay Area.
Capsule 8 is a pop-up clothing retail space created by Marisa, Ryan, Changlin, and Nicholas. At the start of the Fall 2016 semester we were given the task of creating a pop-up store for the category clothing. The team started with secondary research, defining areas of interest; athleisure, recycled, custom/tailored, and capsule. From these four areas of interests, we set out to do street intercepts.

Announcement mailer for the 4th annual Career Day, with Bay Area panelists discussing starting and maintaining a fine arts career, at Nahl Hall on CCAC's Oakland Campus, April 10, 1993.
In honor of the Sculpture program’s 80th Anniversary, the Libraries/CCA/C Archives presents the exhibit History Lessons: Sculpture at CCA/C, revealing sculpture’s central place in CCA’s history. From the 1913 image of Life Modeling students creating crucifixion pieces for the Competition for an Altar Crucifix, to the 2016 image of future grads installing the spatio-temporal works of The Immediate Archive, these images of student and faculty makers, their workshops, and the works of art they created give us a glimpse of sculpture through the decades and of the continued passionate pursuit of sculpture practices at CCA.
