While Butler University does not currently offer degrees in Applied Art, Art History, and/or Visual Culture, it does employ a full-time professor who is an art historian and two full-time professors who are active applied artists.  Butler also offers a number of art, art history and visual-culture-related courses, including:

  • Art, A Visual Dialog
  • Art and Visual Rhetoric
  • Art vs. Art:  The Avant-Garde (FYS)
  • Introduction to Drawing
  • Introduction to Photography
  • Introduction to the History of Art
  • Intro to Visual Art

The Butler Libraries seek to provide resources in various formats that support learning and research in these areas.  This guide is designed to help make you, the user, more aware of the various kinds and types of resources available to you.  The resources on this guide do not constitute an exhaustive list.  They have been selected as a representative sampling designed to help get you started in your research on aspects of art history.

Your Librarian

At Butler, a librarian with appropriate expertise and interest is assigned to be a liaison to each of the major subject areas taught at the University.  Sheri Stormes is the liaison to Butler's Jordan College of Fine Arts and the art history courses associated with it.  She is responsible for ordering materials and answering reference and research questions relating to art history and for providing instruction relating to the discovery, evaluation, and use of art history-related materials in the Butler Libraries and elsewhere.

Sheri is available to assist you with art history research and other questions relating to the library from 8 AM to 4:30 PM, Monday through Friday.

Her office is Room 119B on the main floor of the Irwin Library.   Additional contact information is available in the box to the right of this one.

The important thing to remember is:  Sheri is here to help you!  Feel free to contact her with any questions you might have relating to the Library and/or any of its resources for the subjects taught in the Jordan College of Fine Arts!
