    Shefali Mistry leads Michelada Think Tank event on artists of color

  • For decades, the Los Angeles–based artist Lita Albuquerque has blurred distinctions between Land art and Light and Space on increasingly grander scales, whether it be building installations surrounding the pyramids in Egypt or placing sculptures across Antarctica to mirror the formation of the stars. Her cosmic explorations continue with two new bodies of work that are currently being shown at Kohn Gallery in Hollywood, from January 9 through February 27, 2016, and at USC’s Fisher Museum of Art, from January 26 through April 10, 2016.

TOWN MEETINGS — how to submit suggested topics of interest

Otis Town Meetings are held 2-3 times per year as a means for all faculty and staff to come together as a community to learn about various topics of interest or new initiatives happening at the College. In an effort to involve more Otis Community members in the Town Meeting planning process, the following web form can be used throughout the year to submit topics of interest as potential agenda items.
