We are proud of the accomplishments of our esteemed faculty, who provide guidance in the skills necessary for not only artistic creation, but also in expressing contemporary issues through their visual arts. Committed to excellence in all programs, the program strives to combine curricular flexibility with a rigorous mix of experiences and opportunities for serious, focused study in art and design.

The Department of Art is one of the largest departments in the College of Fine Arts. Take this opportunity to explore our website, or join us at one of our upcoming artist talks, student exhibitions, and community events.

Mission Statement

The Department of Art at FSU is a research driven community of students and faculty dedicated to the dynamic interrelationship of ideas, processes and practices. By crossing geographical and disciplinary boundaries, we both discover and create new opportunities for practicing art and design. We cultivate critical, creative and compassionate thinking in an evolving global environment, developing and pursuing innovation while valuing our traditions. We foster a vibrant culture of creative problem-solvers, responsible both to themselves and to the needs of the larger communities to which they are connected. We celebrate the unique role that art and design play in the construction of culture and embrace our duty to advance and share the knowledge gained through our creative research.
