Happy Father’s Day to dads in all forms: alive and gone, new and old, stepdads, fathers-in-law, moms who’ve been incredible dads, grandparents, siblings, uncles, aunts and friends. There’s not one type of dad, but many.

Absolutely listen to this #ArtCenter College of Design Change Lab podcast with incredible Fine Art alumna Jackie Amezquita.

“This walk was about shedding the history of being in the shadows for over a decade,” she says of her final ArtCenter project walking from Tijuana to downtown L.A. Her initial journey to the U.S. was also on foot, from her native Guatemala. ‪

Read my new #ArtCenter College of Design feature on ArtCenter's great internship program. The story highlights the experiences of Graphic Design student Ricardo Imperial as an intern at VICE; Product Design alumna Mia Gamble, a design director at Skechers who spearheaded ArtCenter interns being at the company; and recent Advertising alum Benson Rong, whose internship at 72andSunny in NYC led to him being hired full-time. Thanks!

If registered to vote in California, VOTE THIS TUESDAY, June 5 in California’s primary election.

Do not take our constitutional right to vote and this primary election for granted ahead of the general election in November (one key election race = governor of CA). VOTE THIS TUESDAY!!

A deeply beautiful NY Times piece by Erin Aubry Kaplan about mourning her late husband Alan Kaplan, who was my public HS history teacher in L.A. and profoundly impactful, smart, radical, soulful and honest. One of my favorite teachers.

Erin is black. Alan was white. “We shared a political lens and a common language around the import and meaning of race that was a big part of our intimacy, and part of my certainty that however estranged I might feel from the larger white world, I always had someone at home to talk to.”

RIP pop artist Robert Indiana, best known for his 1960s “LOVE” series. His representation of that word, with its tilted “o,” is absolutely iconic.

"He was reclusive, cantankerous and sometimes difficult. But he was a very loyal, loving man. He was the architect of love," Kathleen Rogers, a friend and former publicist, told AP.
