• A phrase in poetry is not just that phrase, but the echoes of all the words that you didn't choose, that could have been chosen in the place of the words that you did choose. And for me, that is very definitional of what the arts is; it explores the empty spaces around what is.

The USC Roski School of Fine Arts has changed its name to the USC Roski School of Art and Design.


The name change from USC Roski School of Fine Arts to USC Roski School of Art and Design is subtle, yet represents a momentous shift in how students identify themselves and their work within contemporary visual culture. The new name reflects an expanded definition of contemporary art practice, inclusive of traditional and new media. The addition of “Design” to the school’s name celebrates alumni whose multidisciplinary careers range from typography to art direction to brand identity development across a range of creative industries.”
