  • Marisa Matarazzo is an Assistant Professor in the Graduate Writing program at Otis. She is the author of Drenched: Stories of Love and Other Deliriums, which Aimee Bender called "a collection that marks its own territory and stamps it out with a textured beauty." Her work has appeared in Faultline, Hobart, Fivechapters, Unstuck, and other literary journals, and she has taught at UCLA Extension, the Art Institute of California, Los Angeles, and UC Irvine.

  • Gracie DeVito’s work challenges codified modes of art making and production; the output of the work shifts fluidly from painting, to sculpture, to found objects, to performance. Characters and motifs, manifested by DeVito herself or by the characters she creates, rotate through the 2D and 3D spaces of her pieces.

"Costume design uses the language of fashion to create characters, and to place them with great precision and delicacy into the visual and emotional landscape, and the social context, of a specific time and place. Clothes express infinite shadings of personality, from the broadest strokes to the subtlest suggestion; they tell a story. A costume designer is a psychologist, a detective, a diplomat, a social historian, but above all an artist and a collaborator; an artist whose medium is fabric, movement, form, color, texture, light and shadow; and whose work, in concert with actors, directors, cinematographers and production designers, brings characters dramatically and cinematically to life in a tangible, recognizable celluloid world."


Soon after graduating from Fashion Design in 1987, David was recommended for a job as assistant costume designer on the television series Star Trek: The Next Generation. His unique and thoughtful approach to clothing has served him well a busy costume designer for such feature films as Hoffa, Bram Stoker's Dracula, Legends of the Fall, Titanic, Wild Wild West, and Minority Report.
