Welcome to the Art Minor here at Concordia Texas! We nurture a wide array of conceptual approaches to contemporary art regarding creation and curating. You’ll explore both traditional and innovative techniques, experimental art projects, and theories of art from the Renaissance to the 21st century. Our graduates often work in nonprofit art spaces, schools with art programs, community co-ops, galleries, and museums as local as Austin and as far as Shanghai.
