The Feigenbaum Center for Visual Arts is where you’ll entertain new ideas, try new materials, tools and media, and collaborate with classmates and faculty across disciplines.

    Develop your visual literacy and analysis skills, and explore how societies through the ages have defined themselves through art, in art history courses that cover a broad range of historical periods and cultures, from Renaissance masterworks to Chinese scroll paintings.

    Devote yourself to drawing and painting in spacious studios with abundant, natural light, equipment and supplies. Tap into your talents in our professional quality printmaking, digital media lab, photography suites and darkrooms (delve into digital and traditional techniques). Or try your hand at 3D design, sculpture and metalworking in studios expressly built for these mediums.

    Enjoy exhibits and artist talks by guest artists, faculty, alumni and students (perhaps you?) throughout the year in the first floor Crowell and West galleries.

    Factoid: The Visual Arts Department supplies all materials for studio courses, from canvases to cameras. Arts majors in all media also have access to individual studios with movable walls, where they can do and display advanced work any time of day or night.

  • Walking Directions from Visual Arts to First-Year Residence Halls

    Jackson's Garden Bonus Stop, if time allows
    The eight-acre Jackson’s Garden is the oldest campus garden on an American college campus. If you have time, take a quick detour and stroll through. The entrance to Jackson's Garden is through the iron gate and down to the stairs to the left. You can circle back to this entrance and pick up the tour where you left off.

    Walking Directions from Visual Arts to First-Year Residence Halls
    Take the path bearing left around Visual Arts. Jackson's Garden will be on your right as you pass through a courtyard that brings you to the Henle Dance Pavilion. As you continue on that path you'll walk between Wold House and Yulman Theater, then turn left onto North Terrace Lane. Stop at the corner in front of Messa House. You can see Richmond House downhill to the right and West College down to the left. Fox and Davidson are further down to the left of West College.
