On Saturday, October 16, the College celebrated its 80th anniversary with a special event raising money for scholarships.
Art Center at 80: Celebrating the Creative Spirit commemorated Art Center’s distinguished 80-year history and celebrated the ingenuity and integrity of our many students, alumni and faculty.
The inaugural Creative Spirit Awards were awarded to four extraordinary alumni—industrial designer Yves Béhar, introduced by David De Rothschild; automotive designer Frank Stephenson, introduced by David Gooding; blockbuster filmmaker Zack Snyder, introduced by Graduate Broadcast Cinema Department Chair Robert Peterson; and contemporary artist Pae White, introduced by Jeffrey Deitch.
The funds raised from the event will be used to create named scholarships in recognition of the honored alumni, as well as support general scholarships for students in Art Center’s undergraduate, graduate and Public Programs. This support will enable our students to fully realize their potential, regardless of their financial means.
