Studio Art

The Studio Art program emphasizes dedicated studio work and the advanced use of a variety of media. Students examine prevailing social, cultural and personal interest that are reflected in the energy and contemporary nature of their work. Students' art is a manifestation of their individual identity and conceptual research.  Taken in combination with lectures and seminars in Global Arts and Visual Culture, a link to both historical cultures and contemporary means of expression is emphasized.

UCO's Global Art and Visual Culture is a program that researches the art and cultures around the world. It prepares students for interaction within the increasingly global community due to its emphasis on global art historical competence and rigorous research and writing skills. The program is unique due to its transnational and global focus of both Western and non-Western art historical traditions. The term “global” does not simply refer to the global world in its physical sense, but to a transcultural perspective of art historical inquiry. The students examine art and visual culture not only as an expression of diverse societal values, but also as a result of shifting frontiers within the global order. Thus, students are able to recognize that local visual practices are often a result of negotiations between multiple cultural centers of production.
