Faculty Perspective

Department Head, Visual Arts
Professor of Visual Arts

"We use every square foot for classrooms and labs, and there is no room left for making art. This new studio barn will provide much-needed room for students and faculty to work in almost any media, from photography and cinema, to drawing and painting, woodworking and 3D work."
