The Department of Art's mission is to champion the value of the visual arts in the cultural and intellectual life of the University and the community. By training the eye, hand, and mind in traditional and new media and forms, we nurture creative expression and instill appreciation of the central importance of the arts to dynamic, innovative lives.
