Division of Art and Design Mission Statement

The Christian tradition calls upon us to look at the world through different eyes. Using that perspective and the language of art-making affords the opportunity to explore Christian, academic and subjective knowledge toward the development of personal vision. The joy of discovery and the beauty of existence is endemic to the culture and art of man. Some part of God, as well as humankind, is revealed in the visual arts. The extraordinary can be seen in the ordinary by those individuals who are appreciative, cultivated and aware.
