Department of Visual Arts

In keeping with the lofty goals of the University the activities of the Department of Visual Arts are directed to discover and rediscover the art world and its various forms besides plunging into the contemporary and avant-garde trends which transcend the geographical boundaries and identifying various aspects of art so that the live past can be woven into the living present and future. The main concern of the department is to add new dimensions to visual art in the contemporary scenario, by selective absorption. The Department of Visual Arts has two ends, the acquisition and the dissemination of both theoretical and practical knowledge. The practicing Artists and Academicians in Art and related fields from all over the country and abroad have been invited to give lectures and participate in workshops for students". The department has plans to conduct more art camps every academic year for students. We also intend to start Exchange Programme for Students and Teachers in the near future with the other Universities & Institutions in India and abroad. Bangalore University established the Department of VISUAL ARTS in 2004 realizing its dynamic and lofty ideal of evolving as a live cultural center of higher learning in Visual Arts in this part of Country. Prof. Thimmappa (the then Hon"ble Vice Chancellor) felt the necessity and took the initiative to start the Visual Arts Department and is further heart fully encouraged by our Hon"ble Vice Chancellor Prof. H.A.Ranganath for the development of the Department. The University has constituted an Expert Advisory Committee to give valuable suggestions and recommendations for the healthy development of this department. The members include reputed Senior Artists, Art Historians, and Academicians, who would enhance the academic standards and encourage a drive towards achievability in the Arts practice of the country. Their vision and experience would help shapes this Department into becoming a great learning center in the state, as well as make a mark internationally.
