Westchester’s Otis College of Art and Design is turning 100 on September 30, and the college is kicking-off a number of community collaborations to help celebrate its centennial. One of these first partnerships is with Los Angeles World Airports, which recently held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to unveil artwork from 2018 Otis graduates.
The artwork, located in terminals throughout LAX, is part of the airport’s “100percentLA” campaign, designed to use art to highlight Los Angeles’ unique aesthetic and encourage visitors to take photos to post on social media.
“LAX is excited to partner with Otis College of Art and Design for the ‘100percentLA’ campaign, which highlights the creativity and vibrancy of our city as seen through the eyes of young local artists and designers,” said Keith Wilschetz, Deputy Executive Director for Emergency Management and Operations at LAX. “These exciting works of art, which will be installed throughout our LAX terminals this summer, help create a uniquely L.A. experience for our guests and provide an opportunity for them to engage in the campaign and share their own LA stories.”Continue reading →
