Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

In 1991, Fullerton College reinstated its Artist-in-Residence program that had been idle for eight years. The first artist selected was Jack Zajac, a professor of art at the University of California, Santa Cruz. He had trained as a painter in Southern California in the late 1940s; however, it was in the mid-1950s that Zajac picked up a piece of clay and began making sculptures. His work is on display in the Museums of Modern Art in San Francisco and New York, the Joseph H. Hirshhorn and John Paul Getty Collections, the Pennsylvania Academic of Fine Art in Philadelphia, and the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. Zajac donated a sculpture, Ram’s Skull, to Fullerton College, and it is on view in the Fullerton College Sculpture Garden located at the southeast corner of Lemon and Chapman Avenues, next to Wilshire Auditorium.
