Fouts Center for Visual Arts

The Fouts Center for the Visual Arts “embodies the value of studio art within the construct of a liberal arts education,” said Charles Timm-Ballard, associate professor of art, at the building’s dedication in September 2008. “We asked for clean, light-filled, maintainable, airy spaces. They gave us all of that and wrapped those spaces in a visually stunning arrangement of material, form and light,” he said. “These qualities immediately announce that this is a place on campus that provides the needs of visual, tactile, kinesthetic and aesthetic intelligence.” The $14.2 million facility is a model of “current esthetic, technological, and health and safety standards in the arts,” Timm-Ballard said.

The Fouts Center for the Visual Arts embodies the value of studio art within the construct of a liberal arts education. The 38,000-square-foot facility provides space for the college's visual arts program, including:

  • Painting
  • Sculpting
  • Drawing
  • Digital Arts
  • Ceramics
  • Printmaking
  • Photography
  • Book Arts

The facility is located off Park Street, just south of the Reid Campus Center.
