Otis in L.A.

LACMA Director Michael Govan explains the allure of Los Angeles in this simple statement: “Where the modern world was imagined and continues to be reinvented.” Since 1918, Otis alumni, faculty members, and students have imagined the city’s future, created positive change, and made connections across the globe. As artists and designers, they are committed to incorporate human values, social responsibility, and ethics in their thinking and action. This interactive map lists projects by alumni and faculty members, including public art, monuments, and retail stores. Visit www.otisinla.com and plan your trip to see them all.
