The Department of Art and Art History has a wealth of resources available to both faculty and students. The department is located in two buildings, Rembrandt Hall, which houses the studio classrooms and offices, and Lebus Court, home to the department office, art history and studio classrooms and offices, and the Visual Resources Center (VRC). The VRC provides images in slide and digital form, as well as a selection of books, videos and DVDs for use in both teaching and research. The department also offers students funding for research and creative art projects and a series of prizes in recognition of exceptional promise and accomplishment. It also hires students to work in the office and VRC and to support faculty in their teaching and research/creative art endeavors. All majors are encouraged to take advantage of the college’s extensive study abroad opportunities in order to engage with the creative traditions of cultures throughout the world.
