  • Composer Kubilay Üner offers a reactive experience with a live presentation of a new composition made in response to the exhibition Angie Bray: Shhhh. The performance will be interspersed with conversation between Üner and Bray.

  • Kathryn Andrews gets some of her best ideas driving around Los Angeles, where the visual contradictions she sees every day find their way into her art. Andrews, who is originally from Mobile, Alabama, is known for the commonplace objects she fabricates from highly polished and painted metal, into which she incorporates inexpensive or borrowed finds, including rented Hollywood props.

  • Angie Bray is something of a Renaissance woman with a wide range of artistic abilities and interests encouraged and enriched by her upbringing and her liberal arts education. She spent her childhood in the countryside outside Philadelphia where she attended a girls’ school that emphasized music, drama, and art in addition to academics. She studied at La Sorbonne in Paris and earned a Bachelor of Arts from Sarah Lawrence College in New York, followed by a Masters in Education from Harvard University in Massachusetts.

Building a Type Library
Each semester Typography students within Communication Arts are asked to acquire a typeface in an effort to begin building their personal type libraries. Students must provide a copy of the font’s user license or a copy of the purchase receipt to his or her Typography instructor.

To make this process easier the Department has acquired a few typefaces for student use (listed below). Students can pick up their copy in the Learning Lab after signing an End User Licensing Agreement (EULA). Unlike typefaces purchased by students, the following fonts are technically on loan to a student while she or he is a student at Otis. As outlined in the EULA students sign, the fonts can be used for educational purposes and on class-based projects only.

Typecuts

  • DasDeck
  • Haircrimes
  • Switch
  • Volvox
  • WeddingSans


In addition, the Department has put together this list of recommended foundries with typefaces at a variety of price points. Students are asked to speak with their Typography instructor before purchasing any typeface to ensure the choice meets class requirements.
