Transformative, Illuminating. Promoting lifelong learning. These are but a few of the ways the Department of Art and Art History enriches the lives of our students, faculty, the Birmingham community and beyond. The Department of Art and Art History (DAAH) at UAB has the support of an urban cultural arts district built upon the foundation and support of our alumni, foundations, community partners, and Friends of the Art and Art History Department.
Donors to the Department of Art and Art History help provide a transformational experience of the arts unlike any other institution. With premier facilities like the Abroms-Engel Institute for Visual Arts, interdisciplinary connections, committed faculty, and outstanding community partnerships that provide unique experiential-based learning for students, the Department of Art and Art History is steadily evolving to be among the best art and art history departments in the Southeast.
Gifts to the Department of Art and Art History will help build and sustain an extraordinary training ground for artists across media and the scholars and thinkers who examine, interpret, and advance their work. The generous support of many have helped make UAB’s Department of Art and Art History Department the vibrant source of art inspiration and culture it is today.
