With support from the William Randolph Hearst Foundation, Otis’ Creative Action Program combines community engagement and education to deliver unique integrated learning experiences.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 28, 2013

 Otis College of Art and Design’s Creative Action Program and Student Affairs present the 1ST Annual Drive-In of the Living Dead on top of the main parking structure on Wednesday, October 30th at 7:00pm. 1stDriveIn_3The first film in a series of educational screenings of culturally significant films is George Romero’s classic Night of the Living Dead. A lecture by Morgan Woolsey will begin at 7:00pm, followed by classic trailers, and the film will begin at 7:30pm.

Originally released in 1968, Night of the Living Dead was met with heavy criticism for its explicit content and shocking subject matter. The film eventually garnered enough critical acclaim to be selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the National Film Registry as a work deemed culturally, historically, and aesthetically significant.

According to Richard Shelton, Director of Creative Action, “Otis recently acquired a radio transmitter, and we are creating a unique public forum that is both educational and fun. Students are learning how to manage a large-scale event, they are learning about broadcast radio technology and communications, and using their art and design skills to focus on aesthetics. They will study classic film while delivering a culturally enriching event to the community.”

The Creative Action Program at Otis College of Art and Design is an educational initiative comprised of a series of collaborative and community experiences. Students work in trans-disciplinary teams in tandem with a community and/or corporate partner. They focus on team building, researching and addressing the needs of their partners as well as implementing real-world solutions when possible. The goal is to extend the traditional boundaries of the classroom, and respond to community challenges using students’ diverse visions.

Partners of the Creative Action Program have included Friends of Ballona Wetlands, the Center for the Study of Political Graphics, the Museum of Tolerance, Homeboy Industries, and Loyola Village Elementary School.
