Campus Creatives

Featuring San Diego’s Fine Arts Faculty

Coming Winter 2021

Campus Creatives highlights the artworks of 56 artists  teaching in San Diego County’s colleges. Representing fifteen Fine Arts Departments in institutions throughout the county, this exhibition underscores the talents of these faculty members and artists.

The variety of their artworks is immense, ranging from the mastery of traditional art techniques to strong conceptual, contemporary art pieces. Together their works explore the current climate of San Diego’s art scene and demonstrate the County’s strength in arts education.

Faculty at each university were asked to nominate two students to represent their institution’s Art Department, and their work will also be on display.
