Susan and Benjamin Winter Visual Arts Center

The new Visual Arts Center is sited on the south side of campus adjacent to Buchanan Park, replacing the 1970's brick and concrete Herman Arts Center.  The main body of the building is lifted to create views through and under the building into Buchanan Park from the Arts Quad along College Avenue and vise-versa.  From Buchanan Avenue, the building frames an inviting new gateway to the campus along the axis leading to Old Main.
