Schedule a tour today!

You can arrange a tour of the Department of Art at your convenience. When you visit, we will try to match you with a faculty member from the part of the department that interests you most. This person will go over the departmental requirements and general information with you, answer any questions you might have about us, and give you a tour of our buildings, facilities, and studios. We can even arrange for you to attend a class or two if you want.

We do also take "drop in" visitors, but this situation is "catch as catch can," and we cannot always guarantee satisfaction. If possible, please contact us in advance at art@miamioh.edu or call 513-529-2900 to make an appointment. This will allow us to serve you best.
