AT THE ART DEPARTMENT
Programs within the Art Department at SUNY Oswego are designed to provide authentic, project-based learning and cross-disciplinary opportunities to motivated students. Faculty members are artists and scholars who exhibit or publish regularly.
The Art Department’s mission and curriculum focuses on active creation of visual objects in the studio as well as investigation of their social context and historical meaning, which results in a thorough understanding of the creative process.
In the community and surrounding areas such as Syracuse and Rochester, the department provides public lectures, films, exhibitions, and receptions. On campus, Tyler Art Gallery routinely arranges guided exhibition tours and hosts work by students, faculty, and members of the community.
