    Artsy best decribes Alex Olson’s works as "abstract, but that’s not how she would choose to refer to them: “In fact, the way I approach painting is almost the opposite in that nothing is an abstraction of something else,” she says. “It literally is what it is.” Olson’s paintings aim to be exact records of how they were made, self-evident in their construction.

  • 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.

The Computer Center includes all the open-access labs, computer classrooms and Library computers. Computer classrooms are designated for scheduled classes primarily but may be used for open-access outside of the class schedule. It is up to each faculty member whether to permit other students to use the computers in a classroom during class time. Students may use the Open-Access Lab for course work and assignments only during posted hours. Extended-access hours are provided during the last two weeks of each semester and will be posted outside of the Computer Center. Students may also obtain written approval for after-hours access to designated labs from their department and Academic Computing Services. Please refer the After-Hours Access Policy for more information. The open-access hours for each semester are posted on the Computer Center main doors or by calling the ACS office
