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 for scholarship funding to highly qualified undergraduate Fine Art students who would otherwise be unable to pursue education and career goals in the arts, as well as funding to support three exhibitions at the Alyce de Roulet Williamson Gallery. The three exhibitions are:  1) Yoshio Ikezaki: Elements, which will feature selected works of this international artist from 1991-2016; 2) Eclipse, an exhibition containing original works involving solar eclipses; and 3) Mars: Astronomy and Culture, a worldwide traveling show featuring remarkable drawings and beautiful photographs of Mars. The three exhibitions will span the period between March 17, 2017 through January 21, 2018.
