Robert Lazuka, Director


The School of Art is a community of artists and scholars dedicated to exploration and education in the visual arts. Our goal is to prepare graduating students for professions as artists, teachers, or professionals in related fields, as well as for admission to graduate programs. Our nationally acclaimed faculty members were chosen for expertise in their fields of study, as well as for their dedication to teaching. The six schools that compose the College of Fine Arts offers a wide variety of cultural opportunities in fine arts, dance, music, theater, film, and comparative arts. Situated in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, the beautiful Hocking River runs through the campus and the city of Athens. The community affords a number of options for outdoor and indoor recreation and entertainment. Two annual favorites are the Columbus to Athens Fall Classic bicycle marathon and the Athens International Film Festival. Three Study Abroad Programs extend our reach to China, England, and Italy where students can experience first-hand the art and history of different cultures.

Students can earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree majoring in art education, art history, ceramics, graphic design, painting, photography, printmaking, and sculpture. To accomodate these pursuits our facilities include an extensive range of ceramic kilns; a sculpture building, including metal working equipment, a modern foundry, and a comprehensive wood shop; painting and drawing studios; printmaking facilities with photo-silkscreen, lithography, etching and typesetting presses, digital equipment for production large-scale prints; graphic design digital labs; extensive darkrooms, photography studios, and computers for digital imagery. Our own Visual Resource Library contains more than 200,000 images in slide form and numerous videotapes and books. All students have e-mail access and entry to the major collections in the Fine Arts Library located at Ohio University's Alden Library, which serves as a federal researach repository and is particularly strong in Renaissance, 19th century, Oceanic, modern art, contemporary art, and the history of photography. On-campus study collections include the Kennedy Collection of Native American Art, the Kennedy Collection of African Art, the Trisolini Contemporary Print Collection, as well as exhibitions curated at the Kennedy Museum of Art. Our Visiting Artists program regulary brings to campus internationally known artists and scholars.

All students enter the art program as General Art Majors and have shared experience during their first two years in the Foundations program. This program provides students with a basis for critical and creative thinking by giving them a broad range of experiences in the studio and in the classroom. These first two years also give students the opportunity to integrate their general education studies with their development as growing artists and scholars. Once students complete this aspect of the program most of the explorations focus upon study within the chosen area of specialization. (Students interested in becoming art education or art history majors should consult with faculty in those areas during their first year of study.) Studio areas require an exhibition of each student's art works as the crowning event in achieving the BFA degree. Student achievements are acknowledged through awards presented at student exhibitions, as well as through talent and academic scholarships. These scholarships are available to both incoming and continuing students.

With a faculty of 30 members, the School of Art makes advising an integral part of the educational experience. Students are encouraged to consult regulary with advisors concerning the selection of courses and programs toward fulfilling degree requirements. Advisors also can help students determine which scholarships are available. Other resources for advising and consulting are the Student Services Coordinator, the chair of the Foundations Program, or the area chair in your major.

Three organizations in the School of Art round out the community by affording more opportunities for student interaction. The Undergraduate Art League (UAL) sponsors visiting artists, organizes annual juried exhibitions, and coordinates trips to major museums. The Students in Design (SID) is a student chapter of the American Center for Design (ACD). SID members sponsor design-related events, assist sophomores in portfolio preparation, and attend the annual ACD conference. The National Art Education Association (NAEA) serves as a networking and support organization for art education majors.

The School of Art nurtures an interdisciplinary atmosphere in which students from many disciplines come together. Diversity in gender, culture, and ethnicity exists and is welcome within our program, just as we welcome diversity in method, style, and medium. Artists historically have borrowed from and have been influenced by other cultures, methods, and peoples. We seek out differences and celebrate them.

Admission Requirements

Once enrolled, recognition is given to art majors as they pursue their programs through the annual awarding of scholarships and prizes, including the College of Fine Arts/Dean's Awards and numerous endowed funds. These funds are awarded for outstanding accomplishments at the sophomore through senior levels and are based primarily on talent. Included in the School of Art endowed scholarships are: Kenneth Clifford Memorial, John Steven Cordray Scholarship Fund, Rose Marie Darst Memorial Greene Scholarship, L.C.

Art History Major
Major code BF5123

In the art history program, students learn how to articulate and express their ideas about art and develop research and writing skills as tools for communicating about art. Art history majors research art in depth and may pursue graduate art history studies. Many students complete internships at galleries and museums throughout the country. To reflect the breadth and variety of art, the art history program offers a diverse, comprehensive curriculum in the history of world art. Students from across the University have opportunities to participate in summer Study Abroad programs in Italy, Great Britain, and China, where they experience art monuments in their unique historical and cultural contexts.

The B.F.A. in art history provides a strong foundation in art history and studio art, advanced courses in art history, and liberal arts electives. Art history majors enter graduate study, seek employment in museums, or work in related fields. Students are expected to arrange programs of study with assigned faculty advisors. Selection of elective courses, in particular, should be made only after consultation with an advisor.

To apply to become an art history major, you must (1) complete and achieve a minimum 3.0 g.p.a. in two courses from the art history survey sequence; (2) have an overall academic g.p.a. of at least 2.75; (3) submit a copy of your DARS form for review and two samples of your own academic writing, (one of which must be a sample from an art history course) to the art history chair; and (4) be prepared to discuss why you wish to declare art history as your major. Students should apply upon completion of two of the art history survey courses that include AH 211, 212, 213, and 214.

To graduate as an art history major, you must have completed at least one year of a foreign language. (See area chair for policy concerning undergraduate foreign language requirement.)

Students may apply to more than one area, but are encouraged to dedicate their studies to only one, after passing review. Some major areas have portfolio reviews only in the spring, while others have them each quarter. Consult area faculty for specific dates and criteria for review.
