The Department of Art offers students an exciting learning environment in which to practice the visual arts and to study art in its historical and theoretical contexts. Our faculty work to ensure that all students graduate with the ability to think creatively and critically, both about the art they produce and the art they study. We are committed to helping students achieve the visual literacy that is essential to negotiating the world today by preparing students for careers as visual artists; for work in galleries, museums, and arts administration; and for a life enriched by the visual arts.
