Art Building

Located on ASU’s Tempe Campus, the art building for the Herberger Institute for Design and the Art’s School of Art encapsulates in one centralized location the diversity of the school and the wealth of opportunities provided. As a hub for the School of Art since 1970, the building houses classroom spaces, lecture halls, administrative and faculty offices and student gallery and exhibition spaces.

Experience the space

The art building’s five stories are home to classrooms for many studio courses as well as courses in art education. Painting and drawing areas have large classrooms with northern light as well as The Martin Wong room, a gathering and critique space. Printmaking utilizes the fourth floor for classrooms that teach intaglio, lithography, book arts and photogravure. A darkroom for the film photography courses as well as a computer lab for digital photography are also located in the building; digital media courses for the artCORE and intermedia programs utilize separate lab spaces. Sculpture utilizes the building as well as the neon and foundry areas for their studio courses. A ceramics studio and kiln yard is dedicated to undergraduate ceramics students as well. The two art history lecture halls boast high quality dual projection to facilitate critical inquiry and interpretation.

Harry Wood Gallery hosts graduate thesis exhibitions as well as curated group shows featuring School of Art clubs, juried student undergraduate and graduate exhibitions and the annual Nathan Cummings Travel Grant Exhibition, and is open to the public during normal business hours. Two display cases along the ground floor of the building also showcase two- and three-dimensional student work curated by the school’s galleries director. The building is also home to the School of Art office and other administrative and individual faculty offices.
