  • 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.

Transfer Student Portfolios Include

Sophomore Level
Approach A
10–20 examples of artwork
Show work that mirrors Otis’ Foundation Year, including life drawing, observational drawing, and 2-D and 3-D design.
Also include personal work that expresses your interests and creativity. You do not have to include work from the major you wish to study, but your work should show the core skills of that discipline. For example, if you want to study Toy Design, your portfolio does not need to include toys but should include examples of drawing and 3-D design.
     
Sophomore Level
Approach B
10–20 examples of artwork

Submit work that shows advanced skills in your intended major. For example, students applying for the Architecture/Landscape/Interiors major may submit a portfolio that consists of drafting, rendering, and CAD projects rather than life drawing and 2-D design. Remember, the portfolio must demonstrate that you have the skills to be successful at the sophomore level.

     

2nd-Semester
Sophomore

(Spring Only)
Junior Level
(Fall Only)
10–20 examples of artwork

Highlight your skills in your discipline, and show that you are ready to succeed at the junior level. Select work that shows your advanced professional skills and readiness for internships. For example, a student applying to be a junior in Graphic Design should show advanced graphic design work.

Note: Otis does not admit students as second-semester sophomore or junior level transfers into Fashion Design.
