Message from the Director

Kotaro Nakamura Headshot

Hello Friends,

Summer break has begun and my tenure as director of SDSU’s School of Art + Design is coming to a close. I’d like to thank you for your gracious support and friendship throughout my time here at SDSU. I am leaving with many wonderful, warm memories.

I have always been very proud of the School of Art + Design’s involvement in the community and this past semester is no exception. In this newsletter, we feature stories about our annual student exhibition at Athenaeum Music and Arts Library, a special student award and exhibition at Taboo Studios, a mural project with inmates at Donovan State Prison, and a redesign of the historic Centro Cultural de la Raza in Balboa Park.

Don’t forget to check out our current exhibition, In Transit, at the SDSU Downtown Gallery before it closes on July 14, 2009! Coming up next is Radiant Architecture: The Visionary Work of Eugene Ray which opens on August 3, 2019. Hope to see you there!
