    Anna Craycroft: Tuning the Room

    January 28 - April 16, 2017

    Ben Maltz Gallery

  • Opening Reception

    Jan 28| Special Event
    More

    In acoustical engineering, “tuning the room” is a technique for measuring the specific sound properties of an enclosed space and then adapting the environment to improve its acoustic reflections. New York-based artist Anna Craycroft applies this technique both literally and metaphorically to the Ben Maltz Gallery for her exhibition Tuning the Room. Craycroft’s exhibition asks that we consider how the specific characteristics of an environment shape our experience within it, and how we become attuned in return.

STUDENT ID CARDS ON CAMPUS

All Otis students are required to carry their Student ID card with them on campus at ALL times. ID's are a necessary component to the Student experience at Otis and are needed for the following:

  • To check out Library materials
  • To access Papercut, a declining balance system to pay for prints in the Otis Print Center
  • For Otis student employees to clock-in and clock-out to keep track of working hours
  • To identify yourself to campus security in the event of an emergency

ID Cards are processed in the Student Life Center, located in the Academic Building, room 150. New incoming students at Otis receive their initial Student ID at no charge. There is a $25.00 fee to replace a lost or stolen ID card. Fee should be paid to the business office on the second floor of Ahmanson Hall and reprints of ID's are then provided once a receipt for replacement ID is submitted.

We encourage you to show your student I.D. when using services in the local community. Many other local businesses provide Otis students with discounts. Questions? Contact the Office of Student Activities at 310-846-2585 or by email at studentactivities@otis.edu
