This department's mission aims to foster innovative and thoughtful artistic practice, scholarship, and education. As professional artists, designers, art historians, and art educators, our faculty enrich the experience of visual culture for our students and for the metropolitan area of Charlotte. We contribute to local, national and international dialog through exhibitions, lectures, publications, and other forms of research and outreach. By promoting critical thinking, we empower our students with the analytical and adaptive skills necessary to negotiate and contribute to increasingly complex and cosmopolitan visual world. We offer expertise in the visual arts that is both interdisciplinary and intercultural; an expertise that supports a broadly based curriculum. As a vital contributor to a public urban research institution, the Department of Art History endorses strategies that both derive from our current strengths and nurture our future capabilities.
