Last night, June 4, at the City of Santa Ana council meeting, Mayor Miguel A. Pulido awarded Grand Central Art Center a Certificate of Recognition in appreciation of GCAC’s long-standing relationship with the City of Santa Ana and the promotion of the arts in the downtown.
Grand Central Art Center is honored to be a part of this great city and thanks the Mayor and entire City Council for their continued support of our institution, exhibitions, programs, outreach and activities. The City and Mayor were there as this institution was first developed and they, and the members of the City Council, are here for us today as this institution continues to develop forward!
The recognition capped of another great weekend of activities that took place at Grand Central Art Center during the First Saturday Art Walk on June 2.
GCAC presented artist and curator receptions for our three current exhibitions, Nadia Osline: All the Queen’s Men, Camilla Taylor: The Disagreement and Millard Sheets Studio: The Art of Home Savings and Loan, curated by CSUF Master Candidates Concepción Rodriguez and Wendy Sherman. In our GCAC Theater Space, Tony Sheets and professional storyteller Jim Cogan shared with the audience memories and personal stories on the life of Millard Sheets.
Along with the reception and talk, the surprise performance art piece Guerrilla Gowns, organized and performed by CSUF current students, alum and Grand Central Art Center MFA residences, occurred on our 2nd street promenade.
Just another active night in downtown Santa Ana, CA.
And to top this off, Grand Central Art Center poster announcements are popping up all over the CSUF main campus this week. We’re excited to continue engaging students, staff, faculty and administration with our programming.
Mark your calendar, our next big opening celebrating the 10th year anniversary of ISM takes place July 7th!
