Allison Dalton

Humanities & Sciences


Allison Dalton has made a career of being a writer surrounded by artists of other/all sorts, first in her own schooling and since 2001 as a professor in Los Angeles. In her classes, independent studies, and projects conducted outside of the classroom, she asks students to consider their writing meaningful creative production worth sharing, editing a useful mode of thinking, and book-making an artistic and design project as germane and challenging as work they do in their major-related courses. New publications include "Here Is What I Know: I Know Very Little," a chapbook collaboration with Illustration student Jane Lee; and "Skin Doll," an artist''s interactive iBook supported by an Art Center faculty development grant, available for free download from iTunes.
