Authors, don't be shy. Start posting. (Instructions for your introductory blog post are in our O-Space classroom.)
Readers, this is the course blog for Art & the City of Angels at Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles. Our course description:
This fall, we will step out of our classrooms and studios to participate in Pacific Standard Time, the region-wide celebration of the Los Angeles art scene's rise since World War II. As our city asserts itself as an international art hub, we will reflect on our artistic heritage and its influences on the contemporary context in which we develop and exercise our own artistic voices. Through regular posts to this blog, students will combine research, close observation, and first-hand experience in lively prose intended to engage a wider audience in our semester-long dialogue.
Stay tuned for posts about these Fall 2011 Pacific Standard Time exhibitions (and much, much more)!
