What is an Oment?

What is an Oment?

Momentous shifts. They happen here every day. For nearly 100 years, Otis and L.A. have reinvented the modern time and time again.

Otis is an influencer. A shaper. A cultural force in a city defining contemporary art, design, and entertainment around the globe.

Our people are behind great movements—from the Ceramics Revolution of Peter Voulkos, Ken Price, and John Mason, to Robert Irwin’s radical take on light and space. From Daphne Yap’s concept art for Avatar to George Maitland Stanley’s sculptures for the Hollywood Bowl and Tyrus Wong’s paintings for Disney’s classic Bambi.

These leaps and bounds, when disciplines cross and breakthroughs astound, stem from the Otis experience.

They are called Oments.

We invite you to find yours.

This is where you, your work and your future will be transformed. No longer will you just be creative—you will be ready to shape the future.
