The Art Barn, a converted dairy barn on the west campus, provides more than 10,000 square feet of classrooms and workshop space for Bucknell students.

Art Building

The Art Building, built in 1890, provides classrooms and studios for art students.


Bucknell offers generous Arts Merit Scholarships to talented prospective students interested in studying art or art history. 

The Samek Art Museum

The Samek Art Museum's schedule features the work of nationally and internationally recognized artists in the form of thematic issue oriented and solo exhibits, and an Annual Student Art Show.

Field Trips

Faculty and students take advantage of Bucknell's proximity to major museums and galleries through regularly scheduled trips and individual travel to New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, DC. The three-day, alumni-supported Rothschild-Johnson Weekend introduces students to art galleries and museums in New York City each Fall.


Our majors are placed in museum and gallery internships.
