Our work lets society grasp and understand problems.” Then he goes on to reference the wisdom of CalArts’ 1st president, “The need to stretch the limits, the boundaries, of the human imagination is greater right now than it has ever been before in history,” Corrigan said upon accepting the CalArts presidency. “And it is for this reason that I believe the arts are not just valuable in the broad cultural sense that they enhance and shape the quality of the life we lead, but that they are essential to our survival as a human race.”
