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. “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 38,000-square-foot Fouts Center for Visual Arts facility provides space for the college’s burgeoning visual arts program, including painting, sculpting, drawing, digital arts, welding, instruction and exhibits.

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