Art at Davidson

The Art Department is dedicated to the study, history, production, and theory of art and to the conceptualization, collection, exhibition, and curatorship of visual culture as a central part of the liberal arts tradition and educational experience.

Students can earn a Bachelor of Arts degree with an emphasis in either art history or studio art, and the two disciplines are closely entwined. Our goal is to encourage creative approaches to learning in all disciplines as part of the broader liberal arts curriculum.

Through state-of-the-art facilities offered by the Belk Visual Arts Center and the availability of gifted professors who are also committed and successful career artists and art historians, the department provides students with a challenging opportunity for aesthetic growth and personal intellectual development.

State of the Art Facilities

The college views the study of the arts as a vital part of a liberal arts education and shows this commitment by offering many state-of-the-art facilities and venues for the creation, display, and study of art.
