Cal State L.A. will recognize employees with 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40 and 45 years of service to the University and also honor this year's Outstanding Staff.
This exhibition highlights the extensive career of Los Angeles-based artist Walter Askin whose multi-faceted work ranges from sardonic graphic works, large painterly abstractions, to vibrant figurative sculptures. In each of these respective mediums he creates imaginative yet satirical images whose eclectic imagery resist being defined by any distinct movement.
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 12, 6-8 p.m.
Reception begins at 7:30 a.m. at the Luckman Street of the Arts, followed by the University Convocation at 9 a.m. in the Luckman Theatre.
University Convocation is a recent tradition at Cal State L.A., created in 2013 to coincide with President William A. Covino’s first official address to the University. This year the program will include new faculty introductions, the presentation of the Outstanding Lecturer, Outstanding Professors and President’s Distinguished Professor awards, and President Covino’s announcements and remarks on the 2015-16 year.
