    Artsy best decribes Alex Olson’s works as "abstract, but that’s not how she would choose to refer to them: “In fact, the way I approach painting is almost the opposite in that nothing is an abstraction of something else,” she says. “It literally is what it is.” Olson’s paintings aim to be exact records of how they were made, self-evident in their construction.

  • Marisa Matarazzo is an Assistant Professor in the Graduate Writing program at Otis. She is the author of Drenched: Stories of Love and Other Deliriums, which Aimee Bender called "a collection that marks its own territory and stamps it out with a textured beauty." Her work has appeared in Faultline, Hobart, Fivechapters, Unstuck, and other literary journals, and she has taught at UCLA Extension, the Art Institute of California, Los Angeles, and UC Irvine.

  • Gracie DeVito’s work challenges codified modes of art making and production; the output of the work shifts fluidly from painting, to sculpture, to found objects, to performance. Characters and motifs, manifested by DeVito herself or by the characters she creates, rotate through the 2D and 3D spaces of her pieces.

Inter-Library Loan

Bodleian Library, Oxford 1675

Otis does not have an official Inter-Library Loan Program. However, we are happy to assist students and faculty in finding the resources that they need. In many cases, it's more cost effective to buy material than participate in inter-library loan programs.

There are many other Los Angeles-area libraries available that the Otis Community may find useful.

The Getty Research Library is often willing to send us copies of a limited number of articles from their journals. Please contact Sue Maberry with requests. Otis Faculty are also eligible for a Stack Reader Card.

We are now offering all Otis Graduate Students check-out privileges to the Loyola Marymount Hannon Library.

As part of our SCELC membership, Otis Faculty may now use other SCELC libraries. You will need an Otis photo ID and a form filled out by the Director of the Library at Otis. If interested, please contact Sue Maberry.

Students and faculty are encouraged to request books and other materials that they find lacking in the collection. The reality is that is it often cheaper and faster to buy the needed material than to order it through inter-library loan.
