THE ART OF SEATING
200 YEARS OF AMERICAN DESIGN

Something upon which to sit could easily be the most ancient of human creations. But beyond their functionality, chairs are powerful communicators of status and style. THE ART OF SEATING presents more than 40 iconic chairs designed by John Henry Belter, George Hunzinger, the Herter Brothers, the Stickley Brothers, Frank Lloyd Wright, Charles and Ray Eames, Eero Saarinen, Isamu Noguchi, Frank Gehry and others.

Classroom to Market
20 Years of Innovation in Seating
from Art Center College of Design, Environmental Design

Over the past 20 years, Art Center has become a global leader in education for the design and development of innovative modern furniture. CLASSROOM TO MARKET celebrates and affirms the role of the individual in the design of modern seating. It marks the first time that work by notable alumni will be presented alongside work they made as students.

Art Center College of Design invites you to attend our Aspiring Artists and Designers Series, a monthly opportunity for you to learn about the programs, people, and stories that define the Art Center community.##

This month, join us to learn about Designmatters, a trailblazing initiative that recognizes the power of design in social innovation, is at the very heart of Art Center’s credo: Learn to create. Influence change. As the social innovation department of the College, we pursue strategic partnerships, collaborations and projects that position designers and artists as catalysts of social change—both as students, and later, as alumni—allowing them to combine their remarkable talents with their strong desire to make a positive impact. Join us to hear more about Designmatters’ award-winning local and international projects and programs, including how the Designmatters Concentration makes it possible for students from across all disciplines to engage with design for social innovation in a meaningful and customizable course of study.

The Designmatters concentration is offered to students who wish to explore more fully art and design for social impact. Interested students declare the concentration during the third term and must fulfill a series of seven required courses, which vary depending on the student’s discipline, and include academic, discipline-specific and studio-based offerings.

Admissions staff will be on hand to help answer any questions you have about applying to Art Center.
