Vote for Art Center's Future! Put Honesty First!

Art Center College of Design faces an important decision. Next month, The Board of Trustees will be meeting to decide on the future of Richard Koshalek's presence at Art Center and consequently, the future of the school itself.

Like many universities and institutions around the world, Art Center is embarking on the creation of innovative new facilities and resources for its student body. These -located in The Design Research Center(DRC) are vitally important benefits for faculty, current students, and alumni. This will keep the school and students competitive in this changing world.

Generous donations are already set aside specifically for this project. NO TUTTION OR SCHOLARSHIP MONEY IS BEING DIVERTED AWAY FROM STUDENTS. Anyone who promotes otherwise is blatantly and unjustly misleading and misrepresenting the truth and damaging Art Center's future.

Before this misinformation does any further damage, show your support and demand that this new opportunity (approved by the Board of Trustees back in Oct 2007) and the important work done on behalf of Art Center continues.

The Design Research Center is something to get excited and proud about. Why? Here are the facts: It will...

  • Provide access to global research information for faculty, students, and graduates

  • Positively transform and improve the education experience for students and faculty alike.

  • Create approx. 20,000 SF of new and desperately needed studio space

  • Provide a 20,000 SF state-of-the art digital library

  • Provides a new CMTEL(Colors, Materials,and Trends Exploration Laboratory) funded by Avery Dennison and Nokia

  • Equipped with the most advance technologies evolved and developed by global companies -it will build new collaborations between private enterprise and Art Center's creative education

  • Provide new seminar and meeting spaces

  • Follow in the footsteps of the South Campus Wind Tunnel (the first LEED certified building in Pasadena!) and the new student housing by being 80% sustainable using LEED standards

Art Center is making important strides for the future and continues being an innovative example in the world. Do not allow the abuse of the truth by others cause Art Center to loose such an opportunity and step backwards from the hard work and amazing progress this institution has made. Here is to our future! Here is to honesty on the web!
