Art + Education

The Art + Education program envisions a radical space where contemporary art and social justice education meet. We believe that artist-educators are cultural workers, researchers, public intellectuals, and activists who help us see ourselves and the world in new ways. Our degrees include hands-on experiences in schools, community settings, and the public realm.
