The Millikin Art Club
The Millikin Art Club was created for and by students who desired a place outside of the classroom to discuss, experience, and develop their interests in the arts. Any student interested in art is encouraged to attend meetings and planned excursions since the organization is not relegated to art majors. The Art Club invites and desires students from all disciplines, especially freshmen who are looking to expand their creative outlook and make new friends at the same time.
