We Need Your Help! The Art and Art History Website/Outreach Committee is looking at making improvements and changes to this website. We are keenly interested in your thoughts and opinions about the current website and how you would compare it to other websites and other sources of departmental information. Please consider helping us out with this process by responding to the survey in the link below. The survey should take no more than 10 minutes of your time. The survey will be open to responses through March 31.

NOTE: We are asking for your name and email address so that we can track incomplete or duplicate responses in the system. All identifying information will be removed before responses are collated and will not be attached to any survey information that is distributed.


If you have any further questions, please let me know!

Thank you, JJ Bauer

The Department of Art & Art History is a dynamic center for research, teaching, and learning. Our mission statement—make/frame/reveal—encapsulates both the history and practice sides of the department: we celebrate and embrace experiential strategies, contextual understanding, diverse viewpoints, new insights, and innovative approaches. As an interdisciplinary combination of makers and interpreters, investigators of the present and the past, we are poised to address some of the most pressing social and cultural issues of our time—technology, globalization, politics, ecology, memory, identity, economics, ideology—in all their complexity. Art is a laboratory for experimentation, examination, analysis, and engagement. The Department’s breadth of expertise, methodology, and experience makes it a place for critical thinking, for challenging students to be curious, inventive, thoughtful, and courageous not only to reach new heights, but remake the very standards of success. With each of the six degrees we offer, we encourage students to see things anew, to shift perspectives, dig deeper, and imagine the previously unimaginable—to make, frame, and reveal.
