The Lincoln-Barnes Visual Arts Center of Excellence at Lincoln University provides students with a well-organized curriculum where they have the option to hone their skills as visual artists in the areas of ceramics, digital media, drawing, graphic arts, printmaking, and/or focus on museum culture and art history.
This is accomplished through an emphasis in either Studio Art or Museum Studies. Housed in an environment where intellectual exchange and problem solving are encouraged, students use the knowledge acquired about the art world to creatively express themselves.
By encouraging discovery through experimentation, the Lincoln-Barnes Visual Arts Center of Excellence prepares its students for advanced studies in the liberal arts and present-day careers. The success of the Center rests upon two historic strengths: the traditions of Lincoln University, and the legacy of our unique connection to the world-renowned Barnes Foundation.
