Students at WSU are eligible for membership in the Contemporary Arts Society if they (1) maintain interest in art as a visual language and seek to ameliorate their comprehension of the methodologies of the visual arts; (2) participate in at least 85% of Contemporary Arts Society meetings and organizational functions, and (3) pay the annual fee of $10.00 to support the research and funding of organization functions such as museums, artists/art historians, and educational events.
Special Interest (SI):
It shall be the purpose of the Contemporary Arts Society to educate students with the methodologies, practices, and approaches of contemporary artists and art historians. This education requires field research in appropriate museums and libraries, seminars led by invited art historians and artists, and travel to participate in international exhibitions and panels. Moreover, members of the organization will be encouraged to share this research with the faculty, staff, and student body of Wichita State University, the local community, and fellow universities.
