The Department of Art occupies the E. Bronson Ingram Studio Arts Center located in the heart of the Vanderbilt campus. The facility offers light-filled rooms for classes, individual studios for senior majors, a well-equipped lecture hall, and galleries that can be expanded from one space to four to accommodate exhibitions and critiques. Among the benefits of the art building is the experimental gallery, Space 204, which hosts student shows as well as curated shows of current interest and which acts as a workshop for artists in residence. The first floor of the building has a dedicated space for student work exhibiting class projects and unique group and solo exhibitions.
