The celebration is the first of a few openings, leading up to an official public opening in June.Students are already working in the new building.Photo courtesy Â©Lawrence Anderson/EstoThe new site, a former US Post Office building, was purchased in 2011, and was converted into galleries, classrooms and studios for approximately 630 students, in a 99-day transformation that was completed on time and on budget in time for the current spring quarter, said Art Center President Lorne Buchman.“The acquisition of this building was really important to us,” Buchman told Pasadena Now. “It’s amazing what you can do when you take a 38,000 square-foot building, gut it to its bare walls, and then get a really creative, energetic and focused group of faculty and educators who really understand their need to educate students, ultimately. This has exceeded all my expectations. It’s a sensational space, and I give all the credit to the staff and faculty who worked with the architect to make this happen.”Future plans include student housing, as well as more classroom and fabrication space for industrial design students.‘We’re just thrilled about this, and what the possibilities are,” said Buchman.For more information about Art Center College of Design, visit www.artcenter.edu.

East Moriches Man Made Child Porn from Public Photos, Feds Say

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Federal authorities arrested an elderly East Moriches man they said cut-and-pasted faces of children he photographed in public into hundreds of adult pornographic images—some in which he added his own face.Jay Lockett Sears, a 73-year-old high-profile architect, was scheduled to be arraigned Friday at Central Islip federal court after being charged with possessing child pornography. He faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.“Sears victimized countless children by using their innocent images to create child pornography,” said Loretta E. Lynch, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York. “He then went so far as to use his own image to virtually join in the exploited scenarios he created.”Suffolk County police became aware of his case Jan. 11 when numerous bags containing hundreds of child porn images were found in trash removed from his apartment. The images were discarded in anticipation of Sears vacating his apartment.Parents who believe that their children may have been the victims of child pornography should contact the Suffolk County Computer Crimes Squad at 631-852-6279 or the Federal Bureau of Investigation at 631-501-8600.last_img read more
