Support Art + Design

Make Your Mark

“When I say artist I mean the one who is building things . . . some with a brush—some with a shovel—some choose a pen.” —Jackson Pollock

We at the College of Art & Design are committed to instilling our community with the values of creativity, discipline, and passion. As a part of a flagship institution, the college provides affordable, first-class art and design education to its students as well as adding to the cultural vitality of our state. As our students grow into skillful artists and designers, we are confident that they will be equipped with the tools to thrive in their careers and become contributing members of their communities. We invite you to be a part of our mission in educating the next generation of art and design professionals.

As a state institution, LSU is unable to accept private donations. Therefore, the LSU Foundation is used as a resource to those wishing to contribute to the growth of the university and its colleges. By making your mark on the College of Art & Design, you are supporting not just our students but also the goals of our faculty and administration in making the college a leading resource in the art and design community and professions.
