Photo Gallery of Whitworth Visual Arts Building Construction Progress Available Online

To view a photo gallery of the visual-arts building construction progress, visit www.whitworth.edu/visualartsbuilding.

This two-story, 20,000-square-foot building will house six studios and an impressive new gallery space. The $6.5 million facility is designed to allow long-term expansion and will serve Whitworth students for decades to come.

The building will take advantage of consistent north-facing light for its studios and will have an ample yard area off the first floor for ceramics kilns and delivery access to mixed media and sculpture studios. A state-of-the-art design lab will feature Apple computers, and faculty members' offices will be large enough to double as studios for these practicing artists. The building is slated to open for classes in September 2008.
