CSM has added an exciting new adjunct faculty member to its extensive roster of working artists. Pantea Karimi is a well-established artist who works in installation art, prints, virtual reality and video projection.

Beginning in June 2018, Bay Area Pathways Academy launched yet another successful six-week summer program at the College of San Mateo, serving more than 400 students in grades 6 through 9 from both near and far, including from San Mateo County, a cohort of middle school students from Japan, and a cohort of scholarship-support students from East Palo Alto.

CSM presents “The New Winds”, an exhibition of contemporary Iranian graphic design. The show features posters by 44 select practitioners, who are known for their cutting-edge work inspired by traditional Persian and Arabic calligraphy, art, and Islamic patterns.

“My nightmares inspired my film,” says Nadar Bahu, a CSM film major. As a child, Bahu lost his ability to walk. His student film, Push Forward, chronicles his struggles to keep going despite being told he could not recover. It is a story of persistence and hope. Bahu was one of two CSM student filmmakers selected for a live screening of their films at the Grand Foundation Student Film Festival in March. CSM student Madison Rojas was also honored with acceptance for her film, Hello, Anxiety.

If there was a Super Bowl for jazz ensembles, it would be the Monterey Jazz Next Generation Festival, and the College of San Mateo Jazz Ensemble will be competing there on March 11.

The next time you take a walk around the campus to enjoy the fall weather, check out the current exhibits of student art.

The makerspace at CSM hosted a Salsa and Merengue workshop—a student led session on “making” dance. The space itself has the 3D printers, of course, and the Arduinos, but no technicians or dedicated classrooms.

10 digital media students were chosen to have their work included in “Show Us Your Type: Berlin Revisited 2016”, an international typography exhibit featured in Berlin and online.

When Library Director Lorrita Ford started the makerspace she gathered faculty from science, technology, engineering, art and math disciplines to gauge interest. It was then she realized how much expertise and excitement already existed in the community.

From January 4 – 29, 2015, artwork by the College of San Mateo’s Fine Arts Club artists will be on display at Twin Pine Art Center in the Manor House, 10 Twin Pines Lane in Belmont.
