UCR Department of Art

The Art Department offers a wide range of traditional and contemporary art practices. Students are encouraged to explore and develop their individual talents and skills alongside our faculty.


Challenging what we know and what we see is at the very heart of what we do as artists. We strive for a better world often without knowing what it will look like.


We commit to the telos of the University, which is to strive to better understand the world and discover its great truths. We unite with those seeking justice, equality, and freedom all around the world. We commit to the examining, exposing, and correcting for injustices that have historically tarnished institutions. UC Riverside is the most diverse in its student body of all UC campuses. As we celebrate  all the forms diversity takes intellectually, socioeconomically, and culturally, we will continue to be inclusive, encouraging our students to use their minds and actions in productive and empowering ways.
