Department of Art
Interdisciplinary & Intercultural
Within the realm of the land-grant mission of the university, the Department of Art serves a diverse population through dynamic and rigorous studio, design, art history and art conservation programs. Students are given the opportunity to develop and foster their artistic aesthetic and professional growth through the engagement of materials, techniques and processes.
Critical analysis and theory of art serve as the underpinning of art history courses in the lower and upper division courses. The student’s experience is also enriched through the visiting artists program, largely funded by the Lilian B. Steinman Foundation as well as the Art Department’s gallery, home of one of the largest and critically recognized retablo collections.
