Taking place at the Fort Mason campus art gallery, students, faculty, and activists convened in an exhibition displaying student art in protest of the classes getting cut for the 2019-2020 academic year. The 12 percent reduction, according to the SF Examiner, translates to 863 classes; 554 in credit, and 309 in non-credit classes, with hundreds more classes expected to get slashed before the spring semester starts.
Many students, faculty and community members are disturbed and quite angry with the sweeping cuts. The “Not Business as Usual” event gave student artists the opportunity showcase their work to the public. Students, along with others, later spoke about the impact of the cuts on a personal level as for them it’s not business as usual.
