Institute for Arts and Media

The Bradley Center

Tom and Ethel Bradley in their home.

In 2015 the Institute for Arts & Media was renamed the Tom & Ethel Bradley Center. The Center has an ongoing relationship with the Tom & Ethel Bradley Foundation that strengthens and enhances our mission to disseminate the visual history of the region with an emphasis on ethnic minority communities and photographers, promoting research, serving as a center for the exchange of ideas about our visual history, and contributing to the region’s educational efforts through exhibitions, programs, and digital archives. The name change reflects CSUN’s, the Bradley Foundation and our commitment to furthering our goals and presence in the community, region and beyond.
