Clemson University’s Center for Visual Arts

“Making visible the creative process.”

The Center for Visual Arts (CVA) at Clemson University serves as a place where students, visitors and scholars explore contemporary perspectives in art and culture through research, outreach programming and studio practice.

The mission of the Center is to engage and render visible the creative process.

The CVA is a dynamic intellectual and physical environment where art is created, exhibited and interpreted. It educates through academic research and practice with art at its core, drawing upon varied disciplines to examine critically cultural issues and artistic concerns.
