Hello Class of 2021,

As we've all learned this year, unprecedented times call for unprecedented creativity. Much like you've reimagined learning and making, we have reimagined the commencement that celebrates you, your art, and your resilience. 

Embracing our bold commitment to reinvention, Juhnay Arabesque, our emcee extraordinaire, drag queen, and one of CCA's former directors of the Design division, will serve as hostess as we bring CCA into your homes. 

We're marking your milestone with reflections from alumni artists, inspiration from our honorary doctorate recipient, and encouragement from CCA community leaders. We look forward to celebrating with you, your families, and your friends!
