Throughout history, the fine and applied arts have played important roles within all cultures and the influence of these art forms on society has never been greater than it is today. Whether one realizes it or not, we are surrounded by it. Stereotypically, our museums and galleries display all manner of art. But, art is not found only there. We see it in the design of our coffee cups, the shape of our cars, the look of our furniture, and the design of this web site.

The Department of Art, Graphic Design and Art History at Oklahoma State University is dedicated to excellence in the education of all forms of art creation, art history, and design. We have excellent facilities for painting, drawing, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, jewelry and small metals, digital photo and video, two-dimensional and three-dimensional design, graphic design, illustration, typography, and art history. Our faculty members are experts in their fields and have national/international reputations. Our Studio Arts, Art History, and Graphic Design programs focus on traditional skills and thorough knowledge of historical and contemporary artmaking practices.

We are also dedicated to something that is very important to a liberal arts education, exposure to the Arts through public events.

We have up to twelve exhibitions a year in our spectacular Gardiner Art Gallery. We have a sizable lecture series where artists, designers, and art historians present their research. We also work closely with the Theatre and Music departments through OSU ARTS.

Whatever your interests, the Department of Art, Graphic Design and Art History has something for you. We invite you to tour our facilities and attend our events, all of which are free and open to the public. For those of you considering a career in the visual arts, please contact us for further information; we will be happy to assist you.

Tünde Darvay: Whisperings

January 15 - February 22

Reception: Thursday, February 7, 5:00p-6:00p, Lecture 6:00p - 7:00p

Workshops: Bartlett Center, Thursday, February 7

Prairie Art Center, Friday, February 8, 10:00a - 2:00p

Tünde Darvay’s paintings are inspired by the unique rural landscapes of Transylvania, Romania where she was born, mythological stories, interpersonal relationships, the relationship between the human and the animal world, and personal stories shared by friends. “My aesthetic worldview is profoundly mythical – it depicts a world in which color breathes life into inanimate things in order to create playful, suggestive associations along a broad spectrum of themes and forms.”
