News: PCC Architecture Students to Participate in 2x8 Exhibition at A+D Museum

Pasadena City College architecture students have been selected to participate in “2x8,” an annual exhibition sponsored by the American Institute of Architects (AIA) that showcases exemplary student work from architecture and design institutions throughout California. The exhibition will open with an opening reception on June 5 at 6 p.m. at the A+D Museum in Los Angeles.

“About 10 years ago, the AIA came up with the idea for the “2x8” scholarship exhibition to link emerging talent into the professional world,” explained Coleman Griffith, PCC Architecture Department coordinator. “In recognition of the contribution and success of the PCC Architecture Department to architectural education and the profession, the AIA invited our program as the first community college program in California to be part of this prestigious event in 2003.”

Former PCC student Gabriella Colemanares won second place at last year’s “2x8” event. During the 2010 competition, PCC student Cody Glen won first place overall. The 2x8 exhibitions have raised close to $100,000 in scholarship funds to support California design students.

The exhibition runs from June 5 – 30 at the A+D Museum (6032 Wilshire Boulevard). For more information, please contact Griffith at (626) 585-7370.
