  • For decades, the Los Angeles–based artist Lita Albuquerque has blurred distinctions between Land art and Light and Space on increasingly grander scales, whether it be building installations surrounding the pyramids in Egypt or placing sculptures across Antarctica to mirror the formation of the stars. Her cosmic explorations continue with two new bodies of work that are currently being shown at Kohn Gallery in Hollywood, from January 9 through February 27, 2016, and at USC’s Fisher Museum of Art, from January 26 through April 10, 2016.

Since 1918, Otis College of Art and Design has maintained a position of excellence and a high profile regionally and internationally as an institution that educates creators and thinkers. At the core is its exceptional faculty. In addition to their proven dedication as educators, Otis faculty members are exhibited globally and are recognized fine artists, architects and designers, as well as widely published authors, poets and critics.


According to Otis President Samuel Hoi, “Otis faculty members help students take their places in the world as successful creative professionals. Guided and nurtured by teachers who have traveled that same road, students define their own vision and chart a path to achieve their goals. Through inspired teaching, these future artists and designers catch hold of their dreams.”
