Art MissionAs a vital part of a Norbertine, Catholic, liberal arts institution, the art discipline at St. Norbert College values the power of the arts in pursuit of knowledge, truth and beauty. We cultivate a love of lifelong learning, an understanding of diverse cultures, perspectives and beliefs, and collaboration to gain knowledge, solve problems and engage with the world around us. Our program emphasizes visual literacy, critical thinking skills and attentive craft through a rigorous balance of studio practice and theory.
It was 1961, just before the start of Green Bay Packers training camp, when Coach Vince Lombardi had the idea of putting a logo on the helmets of his players for the very first time. A new design concept, that Packers "G," was born. It's a concept has stood the test of time, thanks to the careful original work of its designer, St. Norbert College adjunct assistant professor of art John Gordon.
