Scope and content

The Graduation Collection consists mainly of the programs and videos for each ArtCenter graduation. The programs list the graduating students (by department in later years) and the commencement speakers. The student promotional materials are cards and handouts created by the students and distributed at Grad Show. The student-produced Grad Books contain photographs of the graduating students in the spirit of a traditional yearbook, while rarely an actual book. The Graduation Posters are similar to the Grad Books with photos of the students. This collection also includes copies of commencement speeches and a few examples of ArtCenter diplomas.
