Facilities include 8 sunny air-conditioned studios, 2 ceramics rooms, a photo lab, 3 printmaking presses and a weaving studio. There are student/faculty galleries in the School of Art and access to the Museum’s 10 galleries of changing exhibitions, which provide inspiration and learning opportunities for all students. Free parking is available in the Danforth Art lot, and wheelchair access is by elevator through the red door on Pearl Street.
