Otis     Los Angeles


The history of Otis College is entwined with the history of Los Angeles itself. From its inception as LA's first independent art school, Otis has always been in conversation with the city it calls home.  In turn, LA has deeply informed the teachers and students who've passed through Otis classrooms over the last 100 years.

In celebration of our Centennial, we've created an interactive map of sites, past and present, relevant to Otis and LA's interwoven story. 

Please explore below and add your own places of interest as well!
