Since 1963 the Art Gallery at California State University, Fullerton has presented exhibitions and produced corresponding publications that have made substantive scholarly contributions to the field of visual culture. The Art Gallery fosters cross-disciplinary interaction and study, and its exhibitions function as instructional tools that inspire and challenge students and faculty. The highly publicized gallery projects represent the most visible and direct bridge between the Art Department and the general community.

In 1970, the Art Gallery moved to its current and permanent location in the Visual Arts Department. In subsequent years, the gallery has earned international recognition for its Museum Studies and Exhibition Design graduate program that provides students with practical and conceptual experience.

College Park 150
(714) 278-4570

The Center for Children Who Stutter provides assessment and treatment for young children who stutter. These very young children require state-of-the-art prevention and treatment provided by professionals who are experts in stuttering.

Education and research to improve services for children who stutter are also goals of the center. The center was a logical extension of a four-year study (1992-1996) funded by the National Institutes of Health, which provided guidance in the selection of assessment and treatment approaches and access to the families of children who stutter in our service area.

The center provides internships for students who are in the Communicative Disorders master’s program. Also, workshops are available for practicing speech pathologists to update their knowledge of fluency disorders.

The Center for Children Who Stutter is supported by the Department of Speech Communication and the College of Communications. The center works closely with the National Stuttering Association, a self-help group for people who stutter, and the Stuttering Foundation of America.

Consequently the center is dedicated to building a complete collection of materials related to the Chicano experience.

The Chicano Resource Center is a great place to identify and locate resources on the history, culture and contemporary issues of Chicanos in the United States. The vast majority of materials, especially books and periodicals, are dispersed throughout Pollak Library and are made available for study and research through library-wide retrieval mechanisms. The center also provides support to the Department of Chicana and Chicano Studies and related disciplines in developing specialized resources for study and research.

The Fullerton Arboretum, a 26-acre botanical garden, is located on the northeast corner of campus. The gardens contain plants from around the world. Many are grouped according to their moisture requirements. Others form special collections such as conifers, palms, rare fruits and California natives. Special plant displays help visitors select materials for their own landscaping.

The recirculating waterfall, streams and ponds are a focal point for migratory waterfowl and visitors from the university and surrounding communities. The Arboretum is an island of serenity in an increasingly metropolitan environment.

The Arboretum also offers opportunities to study local history and culture at the Heritage House and the Orange County Agriculture and Nikkei Heritage Museum. Heritage House, nestled in the garden, is the restored residence and medical office of Dr. George C. Clark, an Orange County pioneer physician. The Clark home was built in 1894 and exemplifies the Eastlake Victorian style of architecture. The house is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and the Inventory of California Historic Sites. It is also an Orange County Historic Site. The Orange County Agriculture and Nikkei Heritage Museum displays exhibits that tell the story of Orange County’s early agrarian days. Both are open to the public on weekends and weekdays by reservation.

The CSUF Associated Students, Inc. (ASI) helped to initiate the Fullerton Arboretum by contributing $10,000 in 1971. Since then, ASI has contributed support monies each year to hire students to help in the maintenance and operation of the Arboretum.

The Fullerton Arboretum is open 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m., seven days a week. The Arboretum is closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day.

The City of Santa Ana and Cal State Fullerton formed an innovative alliance in 1993 to create the university’s Grand Central Art Center, located in downtown Santa Ana in the heart of the Artists Village. The center, which opened in spring 1999, is housed in a block-long, 45,000-square-foot facility. The $7.5 million renovation of the historic 1924 building was a joint venture designed to bring together art, education and the community.

The Grand Central Art Center provides a setting for graduate art majors to live, learn and work in an artists’ community. In addition to studio and living space for students, the art center houses classrooms, galleries and exhibition spaces, a black-box theater, plus a print-making studio, gallery gift shop, and café and reading room. The center’s 83-seat black-box theater presents lectures, film series, panel discussions and productions by the university’s award-winning Theatre Department.
