Kappa Pi Art Honor Society

Kappa Pi has a strong history of student involvement and scholarly activity that allowed its membership to grow artistically as well as intellectually. Surprisingly though, it was not always an honorary fraternity. What began as a small group of students who wanted to discuss and critique their personal artwork has evolved 100 years later into the oldest Honorary Art Fraternity.

In 2011, Kappa Pi entered into the 100th year of existence. What a milestone! For 100 years now, Kappa Pi has offered thousands of art students and professionals a group to call home and an umbrella under which success, talent, creativity and scholarship can be covered.

In hundreds of chapters around the United States and abroad, students and professionals with a similar passion for visual art are today enjoying the excursions, lectures, exhibitions and companionship that comes from being part of a group of like-minded individuals. It has been said that in order to know where we are going, we must first learn where we have been.
