November 15, 2005, 12:00 pm   » 

The faculty of Design | Media Arts represent the diversity of interests along with the interdisciplinary tendencies and innovative hybridity that the department promotes and nurtures in their students. The Fall seminar will focus on their most current creative research that is either at the beginning conceptual phase or in the midst of production. This gives the audience a rare glimpse into the creative process at an early stage along with all the considerations and issues that have to be addressed in order to produce a successful project.

Vasa Mihich’s latest piece is on display at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel in the Kodak complex. He is working on numerous commissions and recently completed commissions for Secretary-General of the United Nations Kofi A. Annan, Queen Silvia of Sweden and the three-time NBA champion all-star Shaquille O’Neal. Mihich was on sabbatical spring quarter of 2004. He is currently in the studio every day working on a series of new paintings. Among other projects that Vasa has worked on was a commission from Google to create 30 sculptures and a commission from a law firm that will be on display in the lobby of the MGM building in Century City.
