Building equitable arts education for the region

At Sacramento State, student-artists practice the innate talents that thrive within them.

As we provide them with the tools to help their artistry take shape, we need your support to provide an equipped and environmentally sound space for those preparing themselves for life as professional artists.

The new art building at Sacramento State will provide students and faculty with a state-of-the-art facility and become the preeminent institution for an equitable arts education in the region.

Destination for equitable arts education

The new art building – paired with our bachelor's and master's degrees in fine arts – positions Sacramento State as Northern California’s destination for an accredited and equitable arts education.

The University is the second in the California State University system to offer a professional fine arts degree.

Campus that thrives on public art

In 'On walls and elsewhere, campus comes alive with public art,' Sacramento State's Daniel Wilson writes about how public artwork has long been a part of the University's culture.

The new art building will further position Sacramento State as a creative hub for public art and the community.

"This is a lovely park-like space. It should be filled with public art, and in an educational way, mapping that art so that folks have a sense of its history."

Dean Sheree Meyer, College of Arts and Letters
