Message from the Director

Kotaro Nakamura Headshot

It is hard to believe that the 2018 school year is coming to an end! As graduation nears in a few short weeks, we are sadly anticipating saying our goodbyes to many undergrad and graduate students. But before they go, they will have two more opportunities to showcase their talent and hard work. Open Studios is a lively, school-wide open house event on May 3. A week later, on May 11, the Art Council Ambassadors Scholarship and Award Reception and Exhibition will take place at the Athenaeum Music and Arts Library. We hope you can join us at these wonderful, culminating events.

I want to take a moment to thank you for your enthusiastic support of the School of Art + Design over this past year. Your support enables us to provide incomparable art + design instruction to our students and helps us bring the best visiting artists, speakers, and valuable programs to our campus, many of which are open to the public. Mark your calendar for October 25, 2018, when with the help of one of our generous donors, artist Nick Cave will come to town!

If you would like to support the School of Art + Design, please become an Art Council Ambassador. For more information, please visit: SDSU Art Council

Have a wonderful summer and we look forward to seeing you in the fall!

Kotaro Nakamura
Director, School of Art + Design, SDSU
