Appalachian State University Department of Art

Artists and designers give voice to ideas through an imaginative combination of materials. The beauty of bringing form to ideas is what happens when they are exchanged with others. Thoughts and feelings visualized here can be found throughout the art building, galleries on campus and beyond. We work hard to bring what happens in the world here too, by inviting artists, designers and scholars to share what is on their minds with us.
