Whitworth Celebrates Art
The new Ernst F. Lied Center for the Visual Arts


The Ernst F. Lied Center for the Visual Arts, dedicated Oct. 4 during Homecoming festivities.

Two significant sculptural works by local artist Ruben Trejo grace the stairwells in the building.

Grace Barnes, '11, and Bryan Putnam, '09, enjoy painting in the north light that is a hallmark of the studio spaces in the new facility.


Looking down the main floor hallway toward the gallery; natural light floods the building.

Barbara Elliott Miller, '42, contemplates The Passing by José Parlá, a featured piece in the inaugural show of permanent-collection works and new acquisitions in the Oliver Gallery.

Ceramic pieces await firing.

Christina Hixson, administrator of the Ernst F. Lied Foundation, which provided the lead gift for the facility, and Whitworth President Bill Robinson chat with Emily Vickers, '11, about her glass-fusing project.

Chelsea Sweetin, '09, works in the new graphic-design lab.

Board of Trustees Chairman Walt Oliver, '67, speaks during the dedication of the building. Oliver and his wife, Shirley, '77, gave a significant gift to the building and named the gallery after their late son, Bryan.
