The Department of Art offers students the opportunity to explore the varieties of visual experience through the plastic and graphic arts and offers a Bachelor of Arts in Art.
The department is located in the Jundt Art Center and Museum. This facility is a state-of-the-art complex that incorporates the appropriate environmental controls and safeguards needed in both the academic and museum areas.
The Jundt Art Center maintains studios in ceramics, design, drawing, painting, printmaking, and sculpture. A theatre-style lecture hall provides space for art history, visiting artist lectures, and video/film presentations. Some of the department's courses are offered at Gonzaga-in-Florence.
The Jundt Art Museum provides collection, storage, and exhibit areas for Gonzaga University's permanent art collection and the ability to not only provide exhibit space for student and faculty art, but changing exhibits of local, regional, national, and international artwork. The museum maintains a print study room for student, faculty, and community use and provides a lounge overlooking the Spokane River for art receptions and related activities. The department reserves the right to retain selected art work done by its students in fulfillment of course requirements.
For students intending to go to graduate school, additional work beyond the minimum major requirements is strongly encouraged.
