Event Series Event Series (See All)

Otis College’s O-Launch Weekend celebrates the next generation of artists and designers with a campus-wide exhibition, fashion show, and open studios that showcase student work from BFA and MFA programs.

The annual exhibition on Otis College’s Los Angeles campus is free and open to the public on Friday, May 10 from 5:00 to 10:00 p.m., and Saturday, May 11 from noon to 6:00 p.m.

Graduating students from Otis’s nine BFA programs—Animation, Environmental Design, Fashion Design, Fine Arts, Game and Entertainment Design, Graphic Design, Illustration, Product Design, and Toy Design—will be on hand to discuss their work, which will be displayed in galleries, showrooms, interactive displays, and digital presentations. There will also be a concurrent group exhibition in the campus’s Bolsky Gallery featuring graduating MFA Fine Arts students, all of whom held solo exhibitions throughout the spring.

Friday night will end with the annual fashion show at 8:00 p.m., which will feature the work of junior and senior Fashion Design students in a full runway show of projects for mentors including Mike Amiri, Revolve, J. Crew, and Katherine Ross/LACMA. The fashion show demonstrates the mastery of skills developed under the tutelage of these seasoned industry professionals over the course of the academic year.

In addition, MFA Fine Arts and MFA Graphic Design students will host open studios during O-Launch weekend, offering an intimate view of their workspaces and creative output. There will also be a book sale hosted by the campus library and a ceramics sale featuring work by students and alumni.

O-Launch weekend culminates in the commencement ceremony on Sunday, May 12, 2024 at El Camino College’s Marsee Auditorium.
