Headlands Center for the Arts

Alumni Artists

Our alumni network, over 1,000 strong and counting, spans the globe and includes artists living and working as nearby as Oakland and as far away as Thailand. Their work is widely published and performed, featured in national and international collections, and frequently represented in prestigious exhibitions and festivals. Many of the works shared with audiences through these esteemed presentation opportunities were conceived at Headlands.

Opportunities for Alumni

  • Alumni New Works: Project-based grants & return visits awarded to select Alumni each year.
  • Send us your news: Keep in touch with us through Twitter and Instagram. Please follow us @HeadlandsArts, and make use of the hashtag #HeadlandsAlumni—a thread which has been started to promote your exhibitions, events, publications, and press.
Because of the ever-changing nature of practices and projects as our alumni continue to develop and present work, our online alumni database consists primarily of each artist’s name, discipline, residency year, and personal webpage. Our intention is to shift our focus toward social media for sustaining a robust, on-going relationship that is far more active and visible.

A Work in Progress

Our online Alumni database is in its beta phase. We’ll be developing Alumni Artist pages in full over the next several months. Please let us know with any concerns or questions (email).
