Ohio State University

The Department of Art at The Ohio State University is broad-based—both discipline intensive and boundary pushing, a modern laboratory in which to create and explore art and ideas. 

Through the production, examination, and evaluation of the visual arts, the Department of Art serves as a place where students and faculty can experiment with material and content, and where a diverse audience can take part in our exhibitions, public lectures, and educational programming. 

Established on a foundation of comprehensive artistic visualization, the department strives to be at the forefront of developments in contemporary aesthetic thought and practice. Our programs, BA, BFA, and MFA each have a fierce commitment to purposeful connection that firmly aligns with the university's mission of education, research, and service.
