Department of Art
Welcome to the Department of Art at Oregon State University. We are a progressive community of artists, designers, historians, students, and scholars. We are a center for the visual arts within a major research institution. We create the contemporary while drawing upon the traditional. Our community is engaged in critical thinking, imaginative problem solving, and contemporary theory. We work in a dynamic and supportive environment which encourages individuality, collaboration, interdisciplinarity, and cultural diversity. Our students develop high standards, self-reliance, and a motivation for life-long learning. We strive to establish individual artistic lives and inspire new generations of creative thinkers and practitioners.
