On February 7, 2009, The CSUF Grand Central Art Center, a staple of Orange County's contemporary art scene, celebrates its 10th year anniversary of incredible programming, exhibitions and events with a huge retrospective exhibition. This multi-media exhibition features highlights from over 200 exhibitions, 35 artists-in-residence, our art catalogs published by Grand Central Press and more! Notable artists such as Mark Ryden, Jeffrey Vallance, Robert Williams, and Camille Rose Garcia are just some of our past artists showing in celebration of this landmark milestone in Grand Central Art Center's history.
The Cal State Fullerton Grand Central Art Center is the result of a unique partnership between the university and the city of Santa Ana. Located ten miles south of the main campus in the heart of downtown Santa Ana Grand Central Art Center is a mixed residential, commercial and educational complex. The art center is a 45,000 square-foot, half-city block deep and full city-block long, three-level structure containing live/studio spaces for visual arts graduate students, the Grand Central Gallery, the Project Room, the Grand Central Theater, Watermark Printmaking Workshop, the Gypsy Den Cafe, the Rental and Sales gallery, classrooms, and a studio and living space dedicated to the center's international artist-in-residence program.
Santa Ana community activist Don Cribb and Cal State Fullerton Gallery Director Mike McGee originally conceived the Grand Central Art Center in 1994 as the anchor and catalyst for a ten-square block area in the heart of downtown designated as the Artists Village.
