Pouchée Ornamented Collection

  • H_M_C_T_ POC
  • Collectie
  • 1782

Acquired from the UK-based private press of I.M. Imprimit, the Pouchée Specimen Sheets are a rare collection of antique ornamented types, originally produced at the foundry of Louis John Pouchée (b. 1782, d. 1845). The letters were engraved by hand in the 1820s as patterns from which metal types could be made and sold to poster printers. They are richly ornamented fat-face styles, incorporating images of flowers, fruit, animals, musical instruments, agricultural implements, and Masonic symbols within the letterforms.

Toyota Lecture collection

  • RG 124
  • Collectie
  • 1986-2010

The Toyota Lecture collection consists of posters, videos, and audiotapes of the lectures. The Toyota Motor Corporation Endowed Lecture Program was established in 1984 through a generous $1 million endowed gift to Art Center College of Design from Toyota. The endowment was used to bring accomplished professionals working in fields directly related to Art Center's departments, as well as architects, writers, historians, critics, and social commentators, to speak on campus.

In June 2009, the name of the lecture series changed to The Big Picture.

Library Director - Elizabeth Galloway papers

  • 14-RG 14.01.01
  • Collectie
  • 1971-2002
  • Part of Library

These Library records were created by Elizabeth Galloway, Library Director from 1979 to 2013. The collection includes memos, minutes, reports, and surveys, which document the activity of the Library Director as well as Art Center. The bulk of the material was collected by Galloway rather than generated by her, and documents Art Center's administration generally more than the administration of the Library specifically. The David R. Brown files include memos sent by Galloway to Brown, memos from Brown to Galloway and to the Vice Presidents, and memos to and from the Board of Trustees. Additionally, minutes of the Curriculum Committee, minutes of the Vice Presidents meetings, minutes and correspondence of the Library Advisory Board, and minutes and newsletters of the Student Government all document planning and changes in the way Art Center operated from the mid 1980s to 2001. A draft of the Leon Whiteson history of Art Center includes Galloway's notes and corrections. Various reports from departments within the school, including enrollment statistics (for international students, Art Center at Night, and Saturday High) as well as independent consultants' reports, add further insight.

Library audiotapes

  • 14-RG 14.05
  • Collectie
  • 1984-2003
  • Part of Library

These audiotapes originally housed in the Library are recordings of a varied collection of Art Center events, visiting speakers, and classes.

Exhibitions records

This collection contains ArtCenter exhibition invitations, announcement, posters, and catalogs from the early 1930s to the present. The collection did not come from one source, and was compiled from years of various exhibitions. In addition, the collection represents all of the ArtCenter galleries, although exhibitions from the Williamson Gallery make up most of the collection beginning in 1992.

Series 1 has materials from Art Center's main exhibits, featuring many prominent artists. Some of these exhibits are traveling, and some are curated by Art Center staff and guests. There is a gap in our collection between 1955 and 1976. An exhibit on Richard Avedon's photographs was an important event for Art Center, shown just two months after the opening of the Ellwood building in 1976. Also historical was the Christopher Le Brun exhibit in 1992 that launched the new Alyce de Roulet Williamson gallery. Beginning in the early 2000s we began more partnerships with other Pasadena institutions, such as with Neuro, 2003 and ear(th), 2004 (both collaborations with Caltech), The Universe, 2001 (with related exhibits around Pasadena), and In the Dermisphere, 2007 (part of a Pasadena festival: SKIN: Art and Ideas).

Series 2 contains invitations and announcements for student exhibits from 1934 - 2004. The early records are mostly for an annual exhibit of student work from all departments. Most of the later records are for individual student MFA shows. This series is incomplete and contains records that were gathered together in 2003. Other materials for student shows may be found in individual department collections. The regular Grad Show announcements are found in the Graduation collection.

Faculty Council records

The Faculty Council Collection consists of by-laws, policies and procedures, meeting minutes, memos, and faculty enrichment grant applications.

Faculty Council videos

This small collection of video from Faculty Council includes grant writing workshops and Faculty Project Grant Project presentations.
