Welcome to a new visual database for the Department of Art & Design at CSUSB!!!

The collection provides access to a wide range of physical materials, with an emphasis on innovative and eco-friendly samples, to educate and inspire art and design-based students. Through sharing these materials with the Cal State San Bernardino campus, the Visual Resource Center helps students and faculty take advantage of emerging technologies, and supports changes in art, art history and design pedagogy. 

Like a library of books, the Innovative Materials Collection is a repository of knowledge, but instead of books, it contains samples of materials. Visit to see, feel, and be inspired by the Innovative Materials Collection.


The Visual Resource Center (VRC) welcomes material samples. Please contact the Visual Resources Specialist at 909-357-5810 or via email at vrc@csusb.edu to discuss the materials you would like to donate.
