    Anne Pasternak joined Creative Time in the fall of 1994. Since that time, the organization, which began commissioning innovative public work in New York City in 1974, has collaborated with hundreds of artists to ignite the public's imagination, explore ideas that shape society, and bring groundbreaking public art to millions of people around the world. Thanks to Pasternak's vision, Creative Time now also presents national and global projects and initiatives, making it the only public arts organization with programs that have reached from New York to New Orleans, Haiti to Hanoi, Dubai to Denver, and now in outer space.

    The Miller Lecture series, established at SCMA in memory of Dulcy Blume Miller, class of 1946, enables the Museum to bring a leading artist, architect, or art historian to campus each year to give a public lecture.
