The University of California, Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive is pleased to announce the addition of two new members to its staff. In August, Elizabeth Upshur will join the BAM/PFA as Webmaster, and Alla Efimova will join the museum's curatorial department as Assistant Curator.
On May 20, 2000, an exhibition of works by candidates for the Master of Fine Arts degree at the University of California, Berkeley, will open at the UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive. Now: The 30th Annual Master of Fine Arts Graduate Exhibition continues the tradition of collaboration between the University of California Department of Art Practice and the Berkeley Art Museum.
