Empty Bowls is an international project to fight hunger, personalized by artists and art organizations on a community level. The project is an opportunity to help feed the hungry in our community. Local artists have generously donated their time and talent to create handmade bowls for the event. Attendees choose an “empty bowl” in exchange for their donation and receive a simple meal to enjoy. The bowl is meant to be taken home as a symbol of their participation in helping feed those in need in Youngstown.
WHY THE DEPartMENT?
The Department of Art at YSU prepares students to become artists, designers, art educators or art historians. As part of a cultural milieu, students will witness a wide variety of styles, philosophies and histories. They will be exposed to various techniques, processes and experiences in the development of a commitment to their work, their community and to the outside world. Expanded visual horizons as well as exposure to various histories will enable students to look both within themselves and outside in a broader cultural context.
BECAUSE WE FOCUS ON YOU
Education in the arts is paradoxical. Art making and the study of art require skills training as well as perceptual awareness. Participation in the process is the primary means of education. Students and faculty alike are immersed in the quest for knowledge and creative self-realization, whether it is in the form of computer graphics, printmaking or the study of art from the past.
The Higher Learning Commission accredits Youngstown State University in an accreditation that includes all undergraduate and graduate programs. In addition, the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD), an organization whose membership includes 250 schools out of approximately 2,000 art departments nationally, accredits the Department of Art.
YSU Open Device Lab
The YSU-ODL (Open Device Lab) is a program housed within the Department of Art originally created for the purpose of providing a testing lab to YSU graphic & interactive design students and designers and developers in the Youngstown community.
