Student Organizations

Student organizations in the James Pearson Duffy Department of Art and Art History offer opportunities for association with other art, art history and fashion majors outside the usual academic setting.  The organizations usually hold special activities, field trips and other events relating to each field.  Students are urged to participate in the student organizations because they provide an excellent opportunity to gain broadening experiences, including leadership positions.  Check the various bulletin boards for information regarding these organizations or make inquiries in the main art office, 150 Art Building.

Centricity Art Company
Centricity Art Company aspires to unite and drive forward, the newest generation of the art world. Paired with charity work and fundraisers; We focus on educating and supplying art classes along with scholarship opportunities to Elementary, Middle and High School students. Besides our work with youth, here at Centricity we strive to create a vault of knowledge for all Fine Arts majors to pull from. Most art students have struggled in working with mediums they may lack experience in. We at Centricity hope to create a liberating environment where students can both, hone into their preferred mediums, and learn about others, thus expanding their portfolios and allowing them to reach their true potential as artists.
