Thaw Art History Center
Everything you could ever need to get your learn on. Classrooms, teacher offices, an art history library, plus a brand new digital arts computer lab fully stocked with Mac Pros. Its comfortable lobby and winding corridors double as gallery space, with an array of student artwork always on display. Thaw also houses Cluster, our student-run organization for visual artists.

Critical Space, a space to exhibit and discuss student-initiated projects that exceed classroom goals
T64, T65, T66
Our painting studio, ceramics studio, and sculpture studio (including wood shop, welding, and carving facilities) are housed in rustic barracks that date back to World War II – which means you can make a gigantic mess during your artistic process. The Barracks also house our private studios, which you can work your way up to as a senior BFA student.
Freshman foundation studios and classrooms
