Here, art studies find common ground with the liberal arts and the practical demands of the profession. By providing a solid art curriculum, the Department of Visual Arts prepares students for lifelong experiences they may encounter as artist who seek creative expression.

Creative growth is nurtured at Malone, where you are inspired by artist professors and a close-knit group of fellow students. The Akron/Canton area offers an inspirational environment for the artist, a rich and internationally known collection of museums, such as the Cleveland, Akron, and Canton Museums of Art. You will have many opportunities to exhibit your work on and off campus in student shows and in local, regional, and national exhibits; intern at museums and with ad agencies; and develop an incredible portfolio.
