Headlands Center for the Arts

Alumni Artists

Our alumni network, nearly 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 such as Zero1, TBA, Under the Radar, and the Whitney, Istanbul, and Venice Biennials. 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 six Alumni per year.
  • USA Projects: An art-specific, crowdsourced fundraising platform.
  • Send us documentation: If you have documentation of your time at Headlands that you would like to be represented on your Headlands’ webpage, please email the Communications department for details on how to submit materials.

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).
