On behalf of the Art and Design department faculty and staff, I would like to welcome you to the Department of Art and Design. Our department continues to grow. We had a strong presence at Student Research Day 2014, with several awards and one group of students who went to the statewide research competition at CSU Eastbay. Our students have also been involved in designing for social causes, including projects ranging from creating a brand identity and funding support for the Intextication campaign against texting while driving to Hope: Homeless Outreach Programs, a fundraising campaign for the distribution of hygienic kits to the homeless in Long Beach. We were fortunate to receive an infusion of funding to replace a variety of worn out equipment as well as obtain new equipment to contribute to our student success in ceramics, painting and photography, including the acquisition of a ceramic decal printer.
Finally, I would like to welcome Dr. Kirstin Ellsworth, our new full-time tenure-track Art History professor. Dr. Ellsworth has a Ph.D. in the History of Art from Indiana University, Bloomington (2005) with a specialization in American art of the 1960s and a minor in art from Africa. We are so pleased to have her join our Art and Design Department.
