San Diego State University, Furniture Design Program

SDSU Furniture artist in residence


The AIR program is designed to enhance the educational experience of our Furniture Program’s students at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Working alongside an emerging or established artist, engaging in dialogue with the resident in the studio and classroom, and learning diverse technical skills from a new artist is a rare and valuable opportunity for all students in the Furniture Program.

The Furniture Program in the School of Art + Design, at San Diego State University is excited to announce the next cycle of its Artist in Residence (AIR) Program. The program invites one resident per semester to work within the Program’s studio and attracts both emerging and established artists looking for an opportunity to engage in a period of intense productivity.


In addition to developing a body of work during their residency, the invited artist will contribute to the community of SDSU. Residents will add to the educational experience of students in the Furniture Program, and the community within the School of Art, Design, and Art History. The resident’s activity within the community will include: participation in graduate seminar, public lectures, mentoring students, exhibition of work and participation in critiques.
