The faculty offers a wide range of artistic possibilities and viewpoints. Thirty artists, art historians, and art educators comprise the faculty. All have received recognition in their fields, all actively exhibit and publish. Numerous awards and honors attest to the quality of their work. For example, in the past three years the University has recognized three of our faculty with competitive and prestigious University Research Excellence and Teaching Excellence Awards. One of our art historians has been invited to speak as a scholar on the traditions of art teaching at the Muse de Louvre and another received the acclaimed Leon Levy Fellowship at the Center for the History of Collecting in America at the Frick Collection. Members of the studio arts sculpture faculty have work permanently installed in Japan, Hungary, England, China, India, the United Arab Emirates, South America and throughout the United States. One faculty member’s sculpture was selected to be displayed at the 2008 Beijing Olympics before it is permanently installed in the Olympic Fine Arts Museum in Beijing’s Forbidden City. Currently, he is an artist-in-residence at the Abu Dhabi International Sculpture Symposium, Bridging Societies Through the Language of Art.
