Get Experience in Studio Art and Art History

The senior experience culminates in a formal show of studio majors' work and a presentation of research by art history majors.

In addition, many students participate in internships or study-abroad programs.

  • The Lynne Coppage Land Scholarship Award provides tuition, room, and field-trip expenses for one student each year to work in architectural restoration during the summer at the Preservation Institute in Nantucket, Massachusetts.
  • Several of our students have won national competitions and been awarded prestigious internships at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Art in Washington, D.C.
  • Other recent placements include internships at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, Thomas Jefferson's Poplar Forest, the Design Group, Lynchburg Fine Arts Center, Lynchburg Museum System, and David Jones Graphics.
