The Arts Research Center kicked off the fall season of programs and events with a “birthday party” celebration in honor of its 15th anniversary on campus, held at the UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive on August 25, 2014. ARC Director Shannon Jackson wrote of the event:

Maybe it really is no coincidence that academic organizations and arts organizations are on the same calendar. It always means that a new “season” of art launches at the same time that students return to school; it always means that the excitement of one can mutually propel the activities of the other. Once again this year, we at ARC were thrilled to be in the middle of all of it — and to launch a series of our own events that foregrounded the connection between the Bay Area arts landscape and the Berkeley campus.
