Message from the Director

Kotaro Nakamura Headshot

The fall 2018 semester has begun and the School of Art + Design is already buzzing with activity. We were excited to welcome the largest group of incoming freshmen and transfer students we’ve seen since 2012. We also have a new Interior Architecture professor, Junichi Satoh, and our multimedia professor, Kim Stingfellow, has been promoted to full Professor.

Fall at the School of Art + Design is always packed with events and activities. In October, we welcome internationally renowned visual and performance artist, Nick Cave; we have a new furniture exhibition, Tom Loeser: Please Please Please, at SDSU’s Downtown Gallery; and our talented graduate students will exhibit their work at the Graduate Review Show in November, just to name a few. We hope you can join us!

We are also exceptionally grateful for the support of our Art Council Ambassadors who give generously to support our Downtown Gallery and provide funds for guest lecturers and speakers as well as student scholarships and faculty development grants. If you would like to learn more about the benefits of becoming an Art Council Ambassador, please visit the Art Council link on our website at: SDSU Art Council.

Thank you!

Kotaro Nakamura
Director, SDSU School of Art + Design
