The Art and Art History Club is open to all art studio and art history majors, minors, and friends. Our purpose is to learn about and discuss all things relating to art and art history. We do this through open discussions at meetings, going on field trips to art museums and galleries, watching art-related movies, selling student-made art, and promoting art education. We are working hard to create an art community among UC Davis undergraduates.
The Art History Club meets every Wednesday at 4:00 pm -5:00 pm in Everson 148
