The Art Department is committed to providing the highest quality educational experience for our students through theory and practice, in the classroom and in the studio, all in the context of a liberal arts institution and a thriving intellectual community. Embracing the interdisciplinary nature of art, each year the department produces a season of exhibits, installations, and shows that explore the complexities of the human experience and engages the hearts and minds of a growing audience.
