thank you, Dick, this is an awesome tribute to the Crafts Center and it's fans.. and there are so many crafts center students who have been inspired to add creativity to their "to do" list, let's keep inviting them to let the administrators know how we feel about the coldly abrupt closure.

Please sign the petition...A great institute of higher educaation like UCSD should be encouraging the arts. Please help to keek the Crafts Center open. As a society and community creating crafts and any art is a step in the right direction toward a lovelier place to live.

How many artists have been mid-wifed by the UCSD Crafts Center. Our civilization needs more arts, culture and spirit and fewer politicians, improperly focused administrators and bean counters!

Art is to education as research is to science. Both are important. The UCSD Crafts Center should continue to serve the entire communtiy.

UNIVERSITIES ARE SUPPOSED TO BE IN THE BUSINESS OF CREATING OPPORTUNITIES FOR CREATIVE THOUGHT AND ACTION. THIS IS AN EXTREMELY BACKWARD MOVE ON THE PART OF UCSD. DEFINITELY NOT THE SORT OF REACTIONARY PLACE I WOULD ENCOURAGE MY KIDS TO STUDY AT.

Please everyone sign this petition! A cause close to my artist's heart! I made my first piece of jewelry at the craft center and recently have been learning how to weld. We're lucky to have this resource and we need to keep it! thanks everyone

I'm shocked! I've taken several classes there and paid for them :) I'm not an artist but I got a lot out of the classes. What is UCSD going to turn into? Sciences only? Because that's the only thing that pays for itself? I'm a scientist at UCSD but even I KNOW that we need a university for the students (who are our future) to be well rounded. And I'm not even talking about stress reduction and also artists! Both of those are important too! We all need to vote for Prop 30 otherwise things...

Please ask your parents and friends to vote YES on prop 30. If I can be of any further assistance please let me know.

Is it money, cuz we sold a craft center to a university, Also watched as a craft center was sold to another school or public instutuion. We saved an apple farm here and now it is getting 8 million a year. I charge you to get creative in these times and pull together not apart. Ask Paul Soldner's estate or Muddy' Myers.
