ArtCenter Design Invitational looks to woo students

Art Center Design Initational

CDN caught up with the likes of Rivian and Lucid during the prestigious California design school’s annual event  

For the first time since the pandemic, ArtCenter College of Design opened its Hillside campus to prospective students, their families and alumni for a scaled-down version of its annual fall gathering. The Southern California institution is known for its annual car show, typically packed with spectators and members of the community along with a star-studded cast of alumni.
