Abstract:

A videotape of CalArts' 1990 "20th anniversary graduation" ceremony. President Steven Lavine speaks. Honorary Doctor of Fine Arts degrees are awarded to Ornette Coleman, Beatrice Manley, and Lulu May Von Hagen. (Coleman's acceptance speech is extremely terse, but the other awardees speak for several minutes each.) Provost Beverly O'Neill presents awards to six distinguished alumni: Suzanne Lacy, Bess Snyder, Kathy Rose, James Dunham, actor Ed Harris, and filmmaker Tim Burton. (The latter three awardees accept their awards via proxies, not being present.) A student speaks, then the various schools' deans confer degrees individually. Students' comments on accepting their degrees are typically edited out. About nine minutes into videocassette two, a student's unusual stunt is recorded in full: he uses a chainsaw to emerge, dressed in drag, from under the wooden stage floor. It is unclear whether school administrators knew this would happen, but the musical number that follows (also involving several other costumed students who take the stage in the traditional manner) is allowed to proceed. More students accept their degrees, and the ceremony ends.
