Accreditation records

  • RG 20
  • Collection
  • 1959-2010

Accreditation reports submitted to both the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and to the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD) provide a tremendous amount of insight into Art Center's curriculum, financial health, and administrative policies. Both draft and final versions of self studies detail such information as enrollment statistics, curriculum development, finances, education and experience of the faculty, and campus facilities (including the Library). In addition, reports filed by the accrediting agencies after site visits are also illuminating. The bulk of the material relates directly to Art Center, but two items are more general: an accreditation report which assesses its influences on universities and colleges in the West by Keith Warner for WASC (1977), and a directory of National Schools of Art (1978).

Architectural Documentation and Special Projects records

  • RG 47
  • Collection
  • 1940-2008

A large portion of this collection consists of administrative records related to the Ellwood building, Design Research Complex, and South Campus. Materials include meeting agendas and minutes, timelines, reports, and planning documents. Dana Hutt was included in many of the planning meetings for the Sinclaire Pavilion, South Campus and the Design Research Complex, and documents reflect her involvement.

Another large component of this collection consists of research. Dana Hutt did research on the Ellwood building at the Art Center Archives and Cal Poly Pomona Archives. Other research about the Ellwood building includes original documents from Peter Blake, who was an architect and close friend to Ellwood. The records include correspondence to Ellwood and his family, articles related to Ellwood, and an obituary on Ellwood by Blake. These records were given to Dana Hutt by Peter Blake for her research and to be kept by Art Center. At the time of her research on the Ellwood building, she was preparing to write a book on the history of the building. Research from Caltech related to the Wind Tunnel is also included in the collection.

Finally, the collection contains planning documents related to the L.A. Now book project, that Dana Hutt worked on with Richard Koshalek.
