Student Facilities - Indiana - Purdue University
The Visual Arts Building (VA) houses more than a dozen large, well-equipped studios for drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, metalsmithing and ceramics, as well as computer labs and lecture and audiovisual rooms. Indoor and outdoor kilns are also integral to the program.
Fine Arts has space in the Dolnick Learning Center (DLC), located across Crescent Avenue in a very scenic and rustic area at the Fort Wayne State Developmental Center (FWSDC). The DLC classrooms are currently shared by Ivy Tech, the IPFW School of Education and VPAâ€™s art and music programs.
Fine Arts has created eight art studios for use by senior art students to develop their senior projects in secure spaces in which they can leave their materials out at the end of a work session and resume at any time without the projects being disturbed. With 24 hour access, the artists have the flexibility to commit extended hours to their artistic endeavors.
In August 2007, the new Music Building will be utilized to host arts conferences, festivals, summer camps, visiting artists and an expanded IPFW Community Arts Academy for pre-K-12 students. With common design elements and in close proximity to the Visual Arts Building and Ernest E. Williams Theatre, the Music Building will be the final piece of our vision of an IPFW arts complex, one which will serve the university and the region as the Center for Arts Education in Northeastern Indiana.
