Founded in 1937, the School of Art is named for Lamar Dodd who as a young man in the 1920's traveled from his home in Georgia to New York to be part of the Art Student's League. There he learned from and worked with many of the luminaries of American art. He returned to Georgia to head the Art Department at the University of Georgia from 1939 until his retirement in 1972. Under his leadership, the department grew significantly. The department was renamed the Lamar Dodd School of Art in 1996.

With over 1000 art majors, the faculty and staff are dedicated to providing the highest level of instruction in studio art, design, art education, and art history. The School attracts highly qualified and talented students who are seeking to study art at a major comprehensive university. The faculty is made up of nationally recognized artists and scholars who promote a rigorous and lively creative atmosphere conducive to experimentation, innovation, scholarship and creative inquiry.
