Travel
Because seeing art is integral to studying art, the Art Department sponsors many trips, either in classes or as a Department. For example, Art History and Art Theory classes regularly venture to Chicago to the Art Institute, Museum of Contemporary Art, the Mexican Fine Art Center and the Oriental Institute at the University of Chicago. We have also traveled to Minneapolis to their Art Institute and to the Walker Art Center. Milwaukee and St. Louis are other day-trip destinations. The Introduction to Art class travels every semester to the Des Moines Art Center. Not only do these trips aid the art student in her/his study, but they help form strong collaborative bonds between students.

In addition to these fabulous short trips, the Art Department also sponsors a January-term travel/study course to Mexico, which has been running for the last 20+ years. And, we are in the planning stages of a new trip in January 2009 to Nepal and India. Check out these links!
