About Art & Art History
Drury University's Art & Art History Program emphasizes engagement with changing cultural contexts that demand flexible and dynamic approaches to historical and contemporary creative and critical inquiry. As such, the progressive, rigorous and comprehensive character of the liberal arts grounds our pedagogies and curriculum, which are fundamentally interdisciplinary in nature.
The Program encourages the processes of self-determination, intentionality, creativity and rationality that are central to innovative and analytical exploration and expression. By developing students' technical, critical and creative capacities, we seek to help them realize their intellectual and creative potential, and to inspire them to engage, contribute to, and shape society and culture.
