It is also home to an estimable collection of artwork and historical artifacts. Additional galleries reside in the art department and the administration building.
Learning environment
The art department is small enough to foster strong student/instructor mentoring and large enough to attract quality professors who are engaged in outstanding research. Small classes ensure you’ll receive personal attention from your instructors, engage in collaboration with classmates, and maximize your learning experience in our studios, classrooms, and galleries.
