Visual Arts Center


Facilities and Labs

Located along the scenic Mississippi National River Recreation Area, this facility gracefully extends the campus footprint in a way that maximizes daylight, minimizes site disruptions, and provides stunning river views from many of the studios and dramatic gallery spaces.  The design, inspired by industrial architecture- with exposed steel structure and mechanical systems, concrete floors and large expanses of glass- provides a minimalist backdrop for the studio and gallery space.
