The Graduate Seminar at Art Center College of Design is a forum for graduate students, members of the Art Center community and the general public to enter into dialog with internationally recognized artists, critics, and art historians. The Seminar—a core component of Art Center’s Graduate Art program—takes place Tuesday evenings throughout the fall and spring terms. Admission is free for the general public.

The Graduate Art Program at Art Center College of Design is based on intensive studio practice and rigorous academic coursework. The program is distinguished by its low faculty-to-student ratio that provides students with the attention and feedback they need to refine and achieve their artistic goals. Faculty and students are artists working in all genres—film, video, photography, painting, sculpture, performance and installation. A significant number of alumni have achieved national and international acclaim, and often return to share their insights and expertise as visiting faculty and guest lecturers.

Art Center College of Design, founded in 1930 and located in Pasadena, California, is a global leader in art and design education. Art Center offers eleven undergraduate and six graduate degrees in a wide variety of art and design disciplines, as well as public programs for all ages and levels of experience. Renowned for its ties to industry and professional rigor, Art Center is also the first design school to receive the United Nations’ Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) status, providing students with opportunities to produce design-based solutions and creative works for humanitarian and nonprofit agencies around the world.
