50th Anniversary

Celebrating the Department of Art

The 2020–2021 academic year is a momentous occasion for Biola University’s Department of Art — the celebration of our 50th anniversary. Over our 50-year history, we have been recognized for our academic rigor, the professional preparation of our students, and for the serious integration of Christian theology and artistic practice. This year will be a time to reflect on our heritage and the tremendous growth we have witnessed and helped to facilitate.

Since our establishment, the Department of Art has never ceased to pursue artistic excellence. Beyond this — as a keystone to the work and identity of the School of Fine Arts and Communication — we have continued to thrive, training students and equipping them to succeed in the art community. Join us for special events, exhibitions and more as we celebrate God’s faithfulness to the Department of Art these past 50 years.
