Events
  • Artist Anna Craycroft, of the current exhibition Tuning the Room in Ben Maltz Gallery, in discussion with artist and curator Micah Silver.

  • Emily Thorpe's art work addresses the twisting formation of memory through spatial relations and moments of domesticity. She will be presenting a solo exhibition for her Graduate Thesis at The Bolsky Gallery, Otis College of Art & Design, on view February 20 to February 25, 2017. There will be a closing reception on Saturday, February 25, 6-9pm.

  • You can easily spot The Little Friends of Printmaking in a crowd—their inky hands and clothes are a dead giveaway. Their work is just as distinctive. JW & Melissa Buchanan first made a name for themselves through their silkscreened concert posters, but soon branched out into further fields, designing fancy junk for whoever would pay them money. In addition to their work as illustrators and designers, they've continued their fine art pursuits through exhibitions, lectures, and artists’ residencies, spreading the gospel of silkscreen to anyone inclined to listen.

  • "In publishers’ terms, Shock and Awe – a hefty, intellectual book about glam rock – is timely." - Jude Rogers, The Guardian

Students Drawing“Every time someone graduates from Otis, art evolves and design gets better.” —Mark Parker, CEO, NIKE, Inc. Commencement Address, 2009

Otis scholarships are an investment in our future through nurturing the next generation of creative leaders. Artists, designers, writers, and creative thinkers play an increasingly critical role in this age of ideas. They strengthen economies, shape the cultural landscape, and bring surprising solutions to complex problems.

At Otis, a unique mix of majors, delivered through a forward-looking curriculum that combines blue-sky thinking with real-world training, sets the path for talented students from all walks of life to develop their creative best. After graduation, many become leaders in their profession and communities, thereby enriching our world through their creativity, skill and vision.

The lives, work and achievements of Otis alumni abundantly illustrate the power of creativity in our economy, culture and society. They tell the story of possibilities made real by a combination of education and talent.

Because over 75% of Otis students receive financial aid, their success also tells the story of how lives are transformed and personal potential realized with the help of scholarships.

We hope you will join many alumni and donors in making a life-changing and future-enhancing investment by supporting scholarships at Otis.
