The San Luis Obispo firm Vellum Design Build and Cal Poly’s College of Architecture and Environmental Design partnered to host the 18th annual Vellum Furniture Design Exhibition, a juried competition among students of the college. This annual event, now in its 18th year, will be exhibiting hundreds of pieces. The reception will begin at 6:30PM on the 5th of November and be held outdoors. Exhibitors and viewers are urged to adhere to physical distancing guidelines and COVID safety protocols, including having current and complete vaccination statuses.

“This competition provides a forum for students to expeditiously exhibit their design passions with alacrity and with a facility for craft,” said co-organizer Tom di Santo, a professor in Cal Poly’s Architecture Department. “It is amazing to see so many brilliant examples of ‘Learn by Doing’ that the students achieve in such a short period of time.”
