Valencia, CA, August 7--In an open letter to President Obama and Congress, a committee of 164 university presidents and chancellors asserted that closing the nation's "innovation deficit" must be a national priority. With innovation at a premium, the arts provide the creative component needed for technological and entrepreneurial progress. Reflecting this reality, California Institute of the Arts (CalArts), long in the forefront of leading-edge arts and technology, has developed an interdisciplinary Digital Arts Minor for undergraduates. The program launches in Fall 2013.
