Art, Art History & Design

Visual innovation alongside critical thinking

Art, Art History and Design students graduate equipped with essential 21st-century visual literacy and interpretive skills. They emerge positioned to lead in a future that will prize the ability to adapt, question the status quo and rethink themselves in relationship to the world. 

Innovative Programs

From partnerships with the Frye Museum, and Photo Center Northwest, to the Seattle University Artist in Residence program, Pigott Family Endowment for the Arts, the Art, Art History and Design department offers students innovative opportunities beyond the classroom.

Galleries and Classrooms and Faculty

Seattle University has four galleries on campus. Our students have 24 hour access to printmaking, ceramics, painting, sculpture and drawing studios, and our faculty are widely renowned in their fields.

During SU Gives we are seeking donations to enhance support for students and faculty in our programs and to support the Campus Galleries Curator Fund. The Campus Galleries Curator produces shows and educational opportunities tied to the four galleries on campus.
