Owen Arts Center

The Owen Arts Center was designed by architect George L. Dahl and consists of three main buildings: Mudge Art Building, Forbes Music Building and the Ruth Sharp Collins Drama Building. The center is home to dance, music and theatre performance and rehearsal spaces, art galleries and studios, the administrative offices of the Temerlin Advertising Institute and the Meadows Art, Art History, Arts Management and Arts Entrepreneurship, Dance, Music and Theatre departments.

Public performance spaces within the Owen Arts Center include Caruth Auditorium, Bob Hope Theatre, Greer Garson Theatre, Margo Jones Theatre, O’Donnell Lecture-Recital Hall, Sharp Studio and Taubman Atrium. Art spaces include the Doolin Gallery and Free Museum of Dallas. Students participate in lectures, film screenings, set construction and music lessons and take advantage of opportunities to form relationships and collaborations across many art forms. The inspiring and challenging environment creates a nexus of energy, creativity and commitment.

Visitor parking is available on the SMU campus in various locations. Please visit the SMU Park 'n Pony site for details.
