When students learn about art, they learn about history and about  genius.  When they create art, they make a permanent contribution that immeasurably enriches their lives and the lives of others. The presence of distinguished visiting artists and scholars on our campus and in the classroom energizes students, challenges faculty, and enhances all the creative efforts of the university.
