Department of Art and Art History

Welcome to Art

Chico State supports our students, regardless of their immigration status, and welcomes Muslims, DREAMers, DACA students, and refugees; the Art & Art History Department supports Muslims, DREAMers, DACA students, and refugees; and I support Muslims, DREAMers, DACA students, and refugees. I believe the executive order and other anti-immigrant policies and statements by the president are violations of justice, freedom, and our values. I am here for each of you, regardless of your beliefs on this issue.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can help in any way to support you or anyone you know through this time:

Asa Simon Mittman, Department Chair,
