Visual Arts Initiative

Pablo Picasso once said, “art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”  We believe that art in all its forms enriches the student experience and develops the rounded individual.

The DCU collection includes 300 art pieces displayed on campus, with significant pieces including the 1911 Memorial by Michelle Rogers and Knock-a-Lough, by Irish artist Brian Bourke.

Support for Visual Arts will enable DCU to expand its aesthetic objectives across all of its campuses.
