Fostering Citizenship As Well As Talent: Ball State’s College of Fine Arts


Hi I’m Michael O’Hara interim dean of
Ball State University’s College of Fine Arts. As Ball State University celebrates
its Centennial I am proud of the impact the arts have made on our students,
faculty, staff, and alumni, and in the broader community.
Ball State empowers young artists with passion and purpose and helps them hone
their craft. As soon as our students set foot on campus they receive hands-on
instruction from professors who are excellent teachers, mentors, and artists
themselves. College of Fine Arts graduates are world-class musicians,
visual artists, entertainers, teachers, and entrepreneurs, among other professions.
At Ball State we do more than educate students we serve our neighbors. In the
College of Fine Arts we encourage our talented artists to be good citizens so
you will see Ball State students display their art and perform at venues in
Muncie and beyond. The David Owsley Museum of Art opens its doors for free
to the campus and community. At the College of Fine Arts we are as much a
part of the community as it is part of us. Ball State’s enduring values:
excellence, innovation, courage, integrity, inclusiveness and social responsibility,
and gratitude have guided us throughout our proud 100-year history and will lead
us into our bright future. Visit bsu.edu/100 and join us in our Centennial
celebration.
