Assistant Professor of Art

Anna Kell

"My whole idea was that the image of nature or decoration of nature actually removes us from an authentic experience with the outdoors. We get a false sense of connection from our surroundings."

Afrotechtopia

Samek Art Museum

Afrotechtopia starts with Afrofuturism and probes into the adjoining dimensions of Afrosurrealism and the Ethno-gothic. Afrotechtopia includes artists who use the languages of technology and mythology to rewind the past and set the future spinning.


What is art? Ultimately, that’s for you to decide.

At Bucknell we'll take you on an incredible journey through creative invention, cultural analysis, critical inquiry and visual imagination to help you figure it out.

In studio art, you'll get an intensive one-on-one education in painting, sculpture, photography, printmaking, graphic design, multimedia, and video and performance art. Art history explores art from prehistory to the present through the Rothschild-Johnson NYC Art Weekend and culminating with the Intercollegiate Art History Symposium.

Did You Know?


Students at all levels exhibit their works of art each spring at the Annual Student Art Show in the Samek Art Gallery.

The art department and the Samek Art Museum sponsor workshops, lectures, and gallery tours with visiting artists, critics, and historians.

First-year students often join the Arts Residential College where students interested in the arts (art, music, theatre, dance, creative writing, etc.) live together and share a common course.

"I truly embrace the idea that art exists as a space where things are taken apart, tried out, reassembled and become part of the cultural landscape."

Undergraduate Research

Symposium

The Central Pennsylvania Intercollegiate Art History Symposium offers a chance for undergraduates to present their research, hone their speaking skills and share their ideas with an audience of their peers. Talks most often highlight senior thesis research, the results of an in-depth research or independent study project, field work and study abroad, or exceptional internship experiences.
