Fine Arts

Denison sees art as a bridge to all other areas of study and research. Our art program emphasizes art-making as a means to think about not only oneself, but one’s relationship to the world of ideas from multiple perspectives.

With a digital library of more than 20,000 visual resources, the Art History Department has organized access to art across centuries and civilizations around the globe.
