The Department of Art is committed to educating its students to become contemporary artists through in-depth core disciplines as well as interdisciplinary and integrated approaches to making art.
Our Visiting Artists, Curators and Practitioners series offers a diverse and vibrant programming of between five – six speakers each of whom conducts a lecture centered on their work and practice, as well as visiting with students in their studio-settings. All lectures are free and open to the public.
The University Museum of Contemporary Art is located in the Fine Arts Center on the campus of the University of Massachusettes. UMCA is a teaching Museum that also boasts an extensive collection of works on paper. The roster of exhibitions includes work by many international as well as American artists.
