CalArts names new art studio building after John Baldessari

Artist John Baldessari has had a long association with the California Institute of the Arts, where he was a professor of art for nearly two decades. On Friday, the school announced  that it is naming a new art studio building on campus in honor of the 82-year-old artist.

The John Baldessari Art Studio Building, which has already opened, cost $3.1 million to build and features approximately 7,000 square feet of space -- much of it used as studio space for art students and faculty.

CalArts paid for the construction using internal funds, according to a spokeswoman. However, the school is launching a $5 million-plus fundraising campaign that is intended to cover that cost, as well as to fund a scholarship. Read more.
