History

In 1974 Sir George Williams University (SGWU) and Loyola College merged to form Concordia University, and existing Fine Arts departments were consolidated into a newly established Faculty of Fine Arts in June 1975. By the time of the merger, both of Concordia University’s founding institutions had responded to the desire for more expansive and accessible education for the artist. Loyola College offered a number of film studies courses in the Department of Communication Arts and formal studies in music and drama in the new Department of Fine Arts established in fall 1973. SGWU’s profile with respect of Fine Arts was stronger, the Department of Fine Arts had been established as early as 1960 and there were already two master programs (Art Education and Studio/Art History). The establishment of the Concordia Faculty of Fine Arts was authorized by the Board of Governors on June 14, 1974. Its first Dean was Alfred Pinsky. The Faculty Performing Arts (Music and Theatre Arts) were grouped at Loyola Campus and the Visual Arts (Studio Arts/Art Education, Art History, Cinema) at SGW Campus. In 1981 the Faculty of Fine Arts was reorganized and existing Divisions of Visual Arts, Performing Arts and Graduate Programs were replaced with formally created departments of Art Education; Art History; Cinema and Photography; Design; Music; Painting and Drawing; Printmaking; Sculpture and Crafts; and Theatre. Later on, some of these departments were reorganized and renamed.
