What is Happening Next?
The CWRU Department of Art History and Art is an important center of art historical research, closely connected to one of the world’s finest museums of art. Since 1968 the department with the Cleveland Museum of Art has offered graduate degrees in Art History and in Art History with Museum Studies. The department offers students various internship opportunities, e.g., at the Cleveland Foundation, the Cleveland Clinic, and the Museum of Contemporary Art. There are active graduate and undergraduate students’ clubs, each of which organizes an annual symposium. The Cleveland Symposium, inaugurated in 1974 and organized by the graduate students, attracts speakers from across the nation and from abroad.
The department’s Art Education and Studio programs are housed in a newly renovated space that allows students to interact with Cleveland’s community of practicing artists. The Art Education division, which recently celebrated its centenary, is allied with the Cleveland Institute of Art. Studio programs include a pre-architecture major.
