Wayne State University


The Department of Art and Art History offers many opportunities for students to participate in extracurricular programming. These activities expand, extend and diversify the skills and knowledge developed in our studios and classrooms.

Many of the activities involve and include community members within and beyond Wayne State University and serve to connect our students with others in preparation for dynamic careers in fine art, design and art history. We are fortunate to have wonderful relationships with area museums, galleries, businesses, organizations and individuals.
