About

The Art program at the Reed College comprises studio art and art history, complementary and interrelated disciplines with a shared interest in the art object and its historical and theoretical contexts. 

Overview

The Art program at the Reed College will teach courses in western and non western art ranging from ancient to contemporary, and the three artists teach courses in drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, digital media and artists' books. The two branches of the department are united both philosophically and, to an extent rare among liberal arts institutions, in actual practice. 

Art historians and artists participate on each junior qualifying and senior thesis exam, and students writing a thesis in studio art or art history are required to take at least four courses in the other discipline. The near balance of course requirements enables some majors to cross disciplines when going on to graduate study or professional work.

Careers

Art alumni are spread out across the country as art historians, artists (painters, sculptors, photographers, video and film makers, printmakers, ceramists, fine woodworkers, tattooists, comic book artists, calligraphers, book and graphic designers), teachers, gallery and museum directors and curators, art conservators, architects, NASA designers, etc. The 2002 and 2003 commencement speakers, both distinguished alumni, were art majors.
