Art Center at 80

80 Years, 80 Voices

We’re compiling 80 quotes from 80 Art Center voices in honor of our 80th anniversary. We’d like to hear your thoughts on Art Center as well as the world of art and design. Make a video, record your thoughts, write a haiku—however you decide to do it, send us your favorite Art Center memories. We want to hear from you!

“Design is appropriate for a person like me, with interests in reason—logic and order—and interests in the senses as a radar of perception that gives meaning. So it is not difficult to balance my scientific mind with my artistic mind, as I have to understand everything with both.”

— Rebeca Méndez, Graphic Design ’84
