Department Summary
Situated within a nationally recognized research institution, the Department of Art attracts students and faculty who value the study of studio art in the context of a larger intellectual and critical environment.  Our curriculum reflects a diverse and fluid set of creative practices and critical methodologies.  Students engage broad and interdisciplinary approaches, as well as depth within specific media and practices.  A robust visiting lecture series, bringing 10-15 artists, critics and curators to campus each year, complements the curriculum. Nationally and internationally active, the faculty thrive on making connections between their individual studio practices and teaching. While we have diverse backgrounds, philosophies and approaches, we have a strong commitment to a collective mission and a shared governance model.
