ASHLAR MAKES LARGE DONATION TO ART CENTER COLLEGE OF DESIGN

 PASADENA, Calif., Feb. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Art Center College of Design and Ashlar Inc. of Sunnyvale, today announced the donation of Ashlar's Vellum 3D and Score! software to the college's Computer Graphics Laboratory. The donation, valued at $219,000, will provide three-dimensional design software that is much needed by Art Center students.
 Ashlar's software donation also comes with a commitment to provide Art Center with a cash donation. Art Center and Ashlar will be jointly contacting Art Center alumni with a special opportunity to purchase copies of Ashlar's computer-aided design software. From each sale, Ashlar will donate $1,000 directly to Art Center. Tim Butte, Art Center's director of corporate relations, said, "Ashlar's contribution will have a significant impact on our computer graphics programs. Not only have they donated highly desirable software, but they are also providing a means of generating additional funding that can be used to further enhance the Art Center learning experience."
 "Education of future designers is an important part of Ashlar's long term mission. We view this contribution to Art Center as an investment in the future," said Jack Hendren, president and chief executive officer of Ashlar Inc.
 Ashlar also sees a great deal of value in the work created by Art Center students. "Art Center presents a unique opportunity to the future research and development of Ashlar products. Art Center students are involved with projects that closely mimic the design markets in which we distribute Vellum software. Because of the projects students work on and involvement by industry, Art Center enables us to duplicate the requirements and deadline factors that face designers in the work force," said Clay Baker, product manager for Ashlar Vellum.
 Art Center College of Design is recognized as one of the world's leading colleges of art, design, film, photography and computer graphics. The college's 11,000-square-foot Computer Graphics Laboratories comprise one of the most advanced and best-equipped facilities of its kind.
 Ashlar Inc. develops Ashlar Vellum, the innovative computer-aided design and drafting software product for Macintosh and Microsoft Windows. Ashlar was recently awarded a U.S. patent (Patent No. 5,123,087) for its Geometric Inference Engine technology which is integral to all Ashlar products.
