ArtCenter College of Design

Pasadena Art Alliance

Established in 1930, ArtCenter College of Design is a global leader in art and design education.  ArtCenter’s visionary approach to education is based on the college’s conservatory-like approach to teaching and learning; a desire for rich, intercultural and transdisciplinary dialogue; and a mandate to provide students innovative learning and making spaces.

The two-part grant will be used (1) for scholarship funding to highly qualified undergraduate Fine Art students who would otherwise be unable to pursue education and career goals in the arts, and (2) to support two exhibitions at the Alyce de Roulet Williamson Gallery: This Is Not a Selfie, which examines the two forms of photographic self-expression of the selfie and the fine art genre of photographic self-portraiture; and Moons, which will mix contemporary art and science to ponder the symbolism and textured surfaces of these floating spheres. The two exhibitions will span the period from February 23 through June 3, 2018.
