      Save Fine Art and Art History Letter:

      The following text is in both Spanish and English.

      Queridos miembros de la comunidad, por favor, ayuden a salvar los programas de Artes Plásticas e Historia del Arte en Cal Poly Pomona.

      La situación puede cambiar, pero por el momento hay 34 programas cuya eliminación está siendo evaluada. Los programas de Artes Plásticas e Historia del Arte del Departamento de Arte están en la lista. La Asociación de Profesores de California y el Departamento de Arte están en contra de la eliminación de programas basada en especulaciones del presupuesto. Estamos luchando contra esta posible medida y les pedimos que se unan a nuestra causa para evitar la eliminación de nuestros programas. Por favor, copie y pegue la carta dirigida al Dr. Ortiz y enviéla por correo electrónicos a: jmo@csupomona.edu and cc brmayor@csupomona.edu

       

      Los Ángeles, Febrero de 2010

      Doctor Michael Ortiz,
      Rector, Cal Poly Pomona
      3801 West Temple Blvd.
      Pomona CA 91768

      Estimado Dr. Ortiz:

      La presente tiene por objeto expresar mi apoyo incondicional para mantener los programas de Artes Plásticas e Historia del Arte en el Departamento de Arte de Cal Poly Pomona. Si los programas mencionados son eliminados, la calidad del programa de Diseño Gráfico, y de la universidad en general, serán seriamente afectadas.

      Entiendo que los programas de Artes Plásticas e Historia del Arte fueron creados de acuerdo a una iniciativa de la universidad, para incluir el estudio de las Artes y las Humanidades en la educación de los alumnos en Cal Poly. El objetivo de la iniciativa fue incorporar el estudio de las Humanidades para expandir la capacidad de comprensión y creatividad de los alumnos. Sin los programas mencionados, Cal Poly sería simplemente una escuela técnica. Las Artes Plásticas y la Historia del Arte son de suprema importancia en una Universidad Politécnica que en este momento ofrece una educación integral.

      Como miembro de la comunidad del sur de California, sé que nuestro futuro depende de la educación de las nuevas generaciones. El objetivo de la educación no es solo aprender aspectos técnicos de una profesión, sino también desarrollar la capacidad de pensar y de esta manera enriquecer el poder creativo. Para lograr este objetivo, los estudiantes necesitan obtener conocimientos de Humanidades. Se ha comprobado que la economía y la sociedad en general se benefician de la gente que ha sido formada con una diversidad de conocimientos y puntos de vista.

      Agradezco su atención a la presente y le solicito respetuosamente que los programas de Artes Plásticas e Historia del Arte no sean eliminados en Cal Poly Pomona.

      Sinceramente,

      Dear Community member, please help us save Fine Art and Art History at Cal Poly Pomona.

      Although some things might change, currently there are 34 programs under review for program elimination. This includes Fine Arts and Art History. The California Faculty Association does not accept the elimination of programs based on budget speculations and neither does the Art Department. We are Fighting Back and we ask you to join us in stopping the elimination of our programs. Please cut and paste the following text and email it to:

      February, 2010

      President Michael Ortiz
      Cal Poly Pomona University
      3801 West Temple Ave.
      Pomona, CA 91768

      Dear President Ortiz,

      As a member of the Southern California community, I support preserving the Fine Art and Art History programs at Cal Poly Pomona. Without these programs the entire University as well as the Graphic Design program will be severely diminished in quality.

      The Fine Art and Art History programs are completely aligned with the University's mission and were in fact created as part of a university-wide initiative to bring arts and humanities education
      and, therefore, humanistic balance, breadth, and creativity-to what would otherwise remain a technical school. These programs are a valuable asset to a Polytechnic University.

      Who needs a broad well rounded education?... Well, the answer is everyone. Our future depends on it. To create a just and whole society a complete education is essential. An education is not just learning technical skills but developing a multi-layered and complex way of thinking that fosters creative empowerment. This involves exposure to a good dose of the humanities. It has been proven over and over that business and the society as a whole benefit from people with an educated world-view.

      Please reconsider your recommendation and DO NOT ELIMINATE the Cal Poly Pomona Fine Arts and Art History programs.

      Thanks for your consideration,
