School of Art

The primary facility for the school is the Fred Jones Art Center, which contains: classrooms, studios, darkrooms, video and film editing rooms and labs for undergraduate and graduate programs, faculty offices, the Lightwell Gallery (an exhibition space) and some graduate student studio spaces. Across Boyd Street is the Old Faculty Club that has been renovated as home to the Charles M. Russell Center for Study of the Art of the American West and houses the studio of our artist in residence, Paul Moore. The Fred Jones Jr. Art Center houses computer labs, studios, and classrooms for the School of Art as well as the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art, which has a collection of approximately 6,000 art objects.

A new ceramics facility is located at Preble and Congress Streets on the South Campus. The School of Art also has faculty and graduate student studios on the North Campus. The Catlett Music Center houses the Fine Arts Library. A new ceramics facility, completed in 1998, adds considerably to the modernization of the three dimensional studio area. It provides 4,973 square feet of work space with offices, studios for undergraduate and graduate students as well as preparation areas and kilns allowing exploration of various ceramic processes.
