Facilities for the study of art include well-lighted studios, individual workspaces and excellent equipment to support all media in the curriculum, as well as individual experimentation. Facilities span both new and traditional approaches to studio art, including digitally based studios for photography, video, computer-generated imaging, three-dimensional imaging and rapid prototyping (three-dimensional printing).
Art students work as broadly and as experimentally as they wish within an environment of open artistic exchange, surrounded by artists in dance, music, theatre, film and communications. Additional facilities comprise a variety of spaces for the installation of artwork, including the Pollock Gallery – the art exhibition space of the Division of Art located in Hughes-Trigg Student Center. The Pollock Gallery provides students, faculty, staff and the surrounding community with opportunities to experience a wide and thought-provoking array of exhibitions representing diverse artists, time periods and cultures, as well as the B.F.A. and M.F.A. qualifying exhibitions.
The Meadows School and SMU offer excellent library and technological resources, including the Hamon Arts library, as well as specific facilities within the Division of Art.
