Department of Art and Design

Our versatile faculty in the Department of Art and Design is made up of award-winning artists; we are leaders in our various disciplines and media, artists that actively produce and exhibit our creative work. As artists and educators, we believe that art has a unique power to change our world, to make it a more beautiful, generous, rich, and open place. Alice Pratt Brown Art Hall is home to spacious studios, computer labs, specialized classrooms and a woodshop. Advanced students have competitive access to private and shared studio space. The Hall is also home to the Clover Virginia Shore Art Gallery and a sculpture courtyard.

ACU's faculty of Christian scholars and professionals are the foundation for student success. Each faculty member is an expert in their field, and at building supportive relationships with ACU students.

Art is important, art makes a difference in this world, and art makes this world a better place, a more beautiful place, and more liveable place. This world needs more than just artists; it needs Christian artists, artists who use their talent and various forms of creative expression to reflect a dimension of the very nature of God, God as Creator.
