Otis prepares diverse students of art and design to enrich our world through their creativity, their skill, and their vision. Otis began in 1918,when Los Angeles Times founder Harrison Gray Otis bequeathed his MacArthur Park property for Los Angeles' first public art college. Today, Otis has expanded to three campuses. Its five-acre Elaine and Bram Goldsmith campus is centrally situated on Los Angeles' Westside, one mile from the Pacific Ocean. map & directionsThe campus is not only close to galleries, museums, and artists' studios, but also surrounded by a variety of film, digital imaging, and toy companies. |
The Bronya and Andy Galef Center for Fine Arts, a dynamic presence on the campus, houses the fine arts department as well as the Maltz and Bolsky Galleries. Kathleen Ahmanson Hall was designed by architect Eliot Noyes in 1963 to house an IBM research center. It now serves the interactive product design, toy design, digital media, communication arts, architecture/landscape/interiors, foundation, and liberal arts and sciences departments. Its "punch card" design embodies the perfect bond between design and technology and the future. The Fashion Design Department occupies an entire floor of the California Market Center in the heart of downtown L.A.'s garment district. The third campus, in the adjacent beach community of El Segundo, houses individual studios for graduate fine arts majors.
