School of Art

For over 75 years, the School of Art at Bowling Green State University has provided a nurturing environment, encouraging students to express their creative voice in a school where art and design is innovative, vibrant, and full of possibilities. 

Our five divisions include StudioDigital ArtsGraphic DesignArt Education and Art History.

At the School of Art, students pursuing our BA, BFA, MA, or MFA degrees experience the exclusivity of a private art academy - our student to faculty ratio is 15:1 - yet enjoy the affordability of a state university.

And, because we are one of the largest state art schools in Ohio, we are able to offer a diverse array of studio and art history classes and study abroad opportunities, as well as the facilities and faculty to position students for successful internships and careers. Many of our students acquire hands-on experience through internships with local and regional arts organizations as well as prominent national entities organizations such as Disney Animation, Pixar, and the Museum of Modern Art.

The School of Art has been accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design since 1984.



ArtsX: Experiment

Saturday, December 3 | 5-9 p.m.
BGSU Fine Arts Center & Wolfe Center for the Arts

Arts and sciences are sometimes considered to be completely different fields of thought, but research and practice alike reveal the correlations between artistic and scientific creativity. Often one informs the work in the other. This interplay between the arts and the sciences inspires the theme of this year’s ArtsX event. ArtsX: Experiment focuses on the art of science and the science of art.

ArtsX is an annual showcase and celebration of the arts featuring the creative works of BGSU students, faculty and staff. The 18th annual holiday event includes fun and entertaining activities for guest of all ages. Enjoy musical, theatrical and dance performances; exhibits, demonstrations and hands-on activities; and holiday shopping for unique, handmade gifts.

No tickets required. Parking is free.

To individuals with disabilities, please indicate if you need special services, assistance or appropriate modifications to fully participate in this event by contacting Accessibility Services at or 419-372-8495. Please notify us prior to the event.
