Capp Street Project
Founded in San Francisco in 1983 by Ann Hatch, Capp Street Project was the first visual arts residency in the United States dedicated solely to the creation and presentation of new art installations and gave more than 100 local, national, and international artists the opportunity to create new work through its residency and public exhibition programs.

In 1998, Capp Street Project became part of the Wattis Institute, where it has evolved into a residency program. Every year, an artist spends three to four months in San Francisco meeting the local art community, working on new projects, and teaching at CCA. Without any fixed or predetermined outcome, each artist develops a relevant and appropriate way to share their work with an audience, which could involve producing an exhibition, presenting a performance, curating an exhibition, or publishing a piece of writing, among other forms.

A list of Capp Street Artists (1984–present) is available here.

The Capp Street Project Archive is housed in the Meyer Library on the Oakland campus of California College of the Arts. Click here to access it online.

The archive documents the process, intention, and realization of installations and temporary projects sponsored by Capp Street Project since 1983. Under the auspices of the college's libraries, the archive preserves and organizes materials relating to the projects and makes these materials available for study and research. Through the archive's website, present-day audiences may view projects as they once existed, learn about the artists who created them, and experience these works anew.
