The official repository for the records of ArtCenter College of Design, Archives and Special Collections serves as the collective memory of the College. Other special collections, such as photograph and manuscript collections, rare books, graduate theses, oral histories, and artist books are collected to help tell the stories of people and communities that shape the history of art and design.
The ArtCenter College of Design’s digital collection at California Revealed consists of moving images from the late 1940s through the early 1980s. Highlights include student film projects, as well as footage of student life and art gallery receptions. The collection also contains a documentary about a painting class taught by influential Los Angeles artist Lorser Feitelson.
