Mission Statement


The Moravian College Art Department cultivates a vibrant academic community committed to creative and critical thinking.  Our faculty and students share a passion for art as a celebration of the mind’s imaginative and intellectual powers.  Art is by nature an interdisciplinary and trans-cultural field that invites students to consider how art reflects and shapes society, politics, ethics, and culture. At Moravian College, art-making is a form of meaning-making that relies on invention, research, and an infinitely curious mind to construct new knowledge, foster self-expression, and explore visual communication.  Students are given the opportunity to unleash their creativity through dynamic projects that embrace risk-taking, problem-solving, revision, and self-reflection.

 

Working at the forefront of new approaches to teaching, learning, and technology, the Art Department  is grounded in strong traditional foundations.   Our program lays the groundwork  for students to integrate and appreciate art throughout their lives, encouraging  leadership in their fields and within the global community. Under the mentorship of our outstanding faculty, our students are provided with a strong, personalized academic major, combined with innovative hands-on learning experiences and opportunities for community engagement and collaboration.  The Art Department is committed to providing professional opportunities through our internships; in-house graphic design studio; student teaching; on- and off- campus student exhibitions; visiting guest lectures; study abroad experiences; student-run organizations;  and  participation in conferences, workshops and presentations.
