Welcome to the Department of Visual Art
The Department of Visual Art at KU functions as a creative laboratory where students, mentored by a faculty of internationally recognized artists, explore a broad range of media and disciplines.
Housed in a major university, the department encourages the development of a unique artistic voice through critical inquiry and research. Students have the additional opportunity to pursue interdisciplinary and collaborative work across the School of the Arts, as well as the University at large.
The 130,000 square foot Art & Design Building provides ample space for the excellent facilities necessary for scholar/artists to gain the technical skills for visual art careers.
