Department of Visual and Public Art

Our Visual and Public Art major is a hands-on program that brings together studio and community art. Through a foundation in the liberal arts, you'll have the opportunity to cross academic boundaries to see how everything is related for a broader perspective. Within your program, you'll delve deep, exploring historical analysis, individual aesthetics, community collaboration, art production, evaluation, and art distribution.
