SCI-Arc’s Annual Gala MAIN EVENT Returns to Campus this April

On Saturday, April 27th, 2019, SCI-Arc will be hosting its annual Main Event gala—an eclectic evening of food, drink, music, and an exclusive preview of the thirteenth annual Spring Show, curated this year by SCI-Arc Faculty Damjan Jovanovic, Angelica Lorenzi, and Alexey Marfin.

Each spring, SCI-Arc Main Event brings together leading philanthropists, business leaders, and distinguished alumni with luminaries from the worlds of art, design, and architecture in Los Angeles to celebrate SCI-Arc's reputation as a world-renowned center for innovation. Net proceeds from the gala directly benefit the SCI-Arc Scholarship Endowment, which helps to ensure that the incomparable educational opportunities at SCI-Arc remain accessible to the most talented and committed students across the globe.

SCI-Arc’s thirteenth annual Spring Show features work selected from its Undergraduate, Graduate, and Postgraduate programs, which showcases design studio projects, as well as coursework from the Applied, Cultural, and Visual Studies seminars, and will be exhibited in themed environments throughout the school.
