Description:The Visual Arts program consists of courses in studio and in the history of art and visual culture. In both cases, our courses provide a practical and critical understanding of the visual arts emphasizing personal development. To this end students are introduced to a range of historical, theoretical and critical approaches to art-making and to the investigation of cultural documents. Students are encouraged to extend their experience through exposure to events sponsored by the Department of Visual Arts and the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts. Students are also offered opportunities to visit galleries and exhibitions through field trips organized by the Department of Visual Arts or in the context of specific course curriculum.

History of Art and Visual Culture courses examine the development of artistic styles as well as the critical and aesthetic issues that these styles bring into play. Major artists and movements are related to their cultural contexts and artistic traditions with the goal of developing critical as well as aesthetic acumen. With the choice of a Major or Minor in the History of Art and Visual Culture as well as a Concentration in Curatorial Studies, students can explore the cultural, theoretical or practical methods involving the interpretation or exhibition of works of art.
