About the Department of Fine Arts
The Department of Fine Arts invites students to experience art as both scholarship and a process of creation. By uniting artistic excellence with intellectual inquiry, we affirm the importance of a broad education in preparing our students for creative participation in a changing society. The department offers programs in studio art and the history of art for undergraduates, and our post-baccalaureate program in studio art is recognized as one of the finest in the country.
Founded in 1951 by Social Realist painter Mitchell Siporin, the Department of Fine Arts features a distinguished faculty of acclaimed artists and noted art historians. Classes are taught in Goldman-Schwarz Studios, Pollack Lecture Hall and off campus at a converted urban warehouse/studio. Department exhibits are held four times each year in the Dreitzer Gallery.
