"Nuancing Neo-Impressionism in 19th Century Paris: Georges Seurat, His Neo-Impressionist Circle, and the Political Implications of Their Artwork" discusses the development of Neo-Impressionism as a platform to express political ideas through novel techniques and modern subjects. Neo-Impressionist works, which displayed less idealized scenes that were common in Impressionism, ultimately represented France and Paris through the lens of everyday life in a way that revealed the differences in the activities and interactions between social classes in the 19th century.

Our Story

The major goal of the Fine Arts Program at Loyola University Chicago is to enable students to develop and refine their modes of perception while expressing themselves in a variety of ways.

To accomplish this goal, the department offers instruction that examines an array of studio media from their multifaceted historical and ethnic perspectives. The Department of Fine Arts prepares students to gain technical expertise which qualifies them to begin careers or to meet graduate school requirements.

Loyola Chicago offers a prime location for this study of fine arts. Its museums, concert halls, and libraries are a vast resource for academic study. And because this city constantly produces fresh examples of jazz, architecture, and public art, Loyola students gain vital access to the living history and practice of the arts.

The Fine Arts program offers several majors: art history, ceramics, drawing and painting, photography, and visual communication. Each student’s course of study is tailored through consultation with an advisor to his or her needs, capabilities, and professional goals. This flexibility stresses individuality and allows students to broaden and enhance their professional experience.

We offer coursework in Art History, Dance, Music, Musical Theatre, Studio Art, Theatre, and Visual Communication. Students can choose a course of study from any of our 7 different majors or 10 different minors, or simply choose to explore a class in the art that interests them.As an exclusively undergraduate liberal arts program, our courses are open to all Loyola students and require no audition or portfolio review for admittance into our programs. However, several of our classes require the completion of pre-requisite courses and a few require placement auditions to assure students are placed in classes appropriate to their skill level. The DFPA also offers a certificate in Graphic Design for non-degree seeking students.
