Nothing is more universal than art. It transcends time and place and yet it can express the nuanced details of a moment in ways that language cannot. The Leland Little Fine Art Department encompasses both celebrated regional artists, such as Maud Gatewood and Claude Howell, as well as those whose art speaks to the world at large, from the quintessentially American scenes of Andrew Wyeth to the famous portraiture of Thomas Sully to the contemporary abstractions of Sohrab Sepehri of Iran.
