Santa Rosa Junior College is known for its outstanding art department. Much pride is taken in the quality of instruction and the breadth of courses offered. The full-time faculty, complemented by an array of adjunct instructors, brings a diversity of skills that find expression both inside and outside of the classroom.

The Doyle Library is home to a permanent collection of art works by faculty and staff members past and present. The interior of this building--built with funds provided by the residents of Sonoma County, via a bond measure--is well suited for exhibiting art, paintings in particular. The abundance of natural light, the large expanses of wall space and the over-all design give opportunity to showcase the various talents of those who teach, create and have contributed to SRJC in various ways. What follows is a list of the works housed in Doyle Library, including their titles, media employed, artists' names and the years the artists have served SRJC. (To view Doyle Collection artists discussing their work, go to Art Talk.) The Mahoney Library also it's own Mahoney Collection which boasts an outstanding collection of artists.
