Three students hanging art on a gallery wall

The Smith art department embraces the history of art, studio practice and architecture. In all three arenas, we are committed to cultivating visual literacy and to understanding artistic production in different cultures throughout time and in our own media-saturated present.

Art majors have gone on to careers as artists, scholars, architects, landscape architects, art librarians, educators, visual resource specialists, conservators, preservationists, curators and gallerists. They have also become editors, entrepreneurs, lawyers and doctors. Whether they major in the field or take a course or two, students have found that informed visual thinking, no less than the pleasure of aesthetic experience, continues to enrich their lives and their work.
