Access and Management
The viewing of archival records is by appointment with the Institute Archivist. Please fill out an "application for use of archival records" and the Institute Archivist will contact you to schedule an appointment.
The CalArts Institute Archive's collections contain documents, photographs, publications, clippings, programs, sound files, video recordings, posters, and miscellaneous items documenting the history of CalArts. There are also a small number of documents, primarily publications, from Chouinard Art School and the Los Angeles Music Conservatory, two institutions which merged in the late 1960’s to form CalArts.
