School Information » Director Statement
Dear Students and Friends,
It is a great honor to be back in the director’s chair at SDSU - a position I held previously from 2002 to 2004. As you may know, I have been privileged to work for some of America’s best known art & design schools (including Pratt Institute and Otis College of Art and Design), yet I am always proud to tell visitors that SDSU educates some of the most creative and accomplished young artists and designers in our country. We enjoy an unparalleled history of excellence in the applied design areas of Ceramics, Furniture, and Jewelry/Metals; in the fine arts areas of Drawing, Multimedia, Painting, and Sculpture; and in both Graphic Design and Interior Design.
Like the graduates of so many other areas of this great university, our Art & Design alumni are part of the creative fabric of San Diego and the greater Southern California region.
I want to extend a personal invitation to visit our studios and galleries to see firsthand the terrific work produced by our creative learning community. We look forward to seeing you on campus soon.
John S. Gordon, Director
School of Art, Design and Art History
