  • A fully updated Mac lab for the Graphic Design program
  • Capacity for intaglio, lithography and relief printmaking in the printmaking studio
  • A tiered lecture room using LED projection for art history and other lectures

Art students also have access to a permanent collection of over 2,500 works in the college museum, including creations by Rembrandt, Picasso and Rauschenberg. In addition, you’ll enjoy a series of rotating exhibits of traditional and contemporary art.
