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 method of 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: 1) 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) partial support of two exhibitions: Victor Estrada: Purple Mexican in the Peter and Merle Mullin Gallery in Fall 2022, and Devin Troy Strother at Art Center DTLA in Summer 2022. Both Estrada and Strother are Los Angeles based artists and alumni of the College’s visual arts degree program. These exhibitions will engage viewers with frank, first-person dialogues around diversity, equity, and inclusion.
