ArtCenter students continue to explore—as you did—beyond the boundaries of a traditional art and design education.

They walk in your footsteps pushing through difficult problems to imagine new possibilities for the future of our hyper-complex and changing world.

Students wrestle to gain an ArtCenter sense of inquiry—the ability to see the extraordinary in the ordinary—and the ability to visualize and make ideas felt.

They are learning to create and communicate in ways that move people—and move people to act.

You know the meaning of this work.  And you know the world needs more of it—creators who can see what you see and do what you do.

Legacy Circle

Legacy Circle, the College’s alumni-led volunteer group, provides financial support so that exceptional young artists and designers can attend ArtCenter regardless of their financial circumstances. 100 percent of your gift—every penny—goes directly to students in the form of scholarships. That’s a powerful investment in the next generation of great designers and artists.

Some of the best and brightest ArtCenter students struggle to find the financial resources to benefit from all that ArtCenter has to offer. Legacy Circle is an opportunity for alums to help a new generation get the same great education we did.

ArtCenter is connecting talent with opportunity on Behance

At ArtCenter we were taught to be self-reliant, but in reality the strength we have is our network. I urge others to help our students by becoming part of this network through Legacy-sponsored events for Alumni.
