Facilities and possibilities for artistic creation
Cummings Arts Center has generous studios, darkrooms, computer laboratories and galleries supporting our diverse disciplines. There are newly renovated studios in sculpture, ceramics and printmaking and a new white-box gallery for student exhibitions and special course projects.
You will have access to internships, retreats and trips to major art centers as well as our visiting artist programs. As a senior, you will be given a studio that is yours 24 hours a day, seven days a week. At the end of the year, you'll exhibit your thesis work in the Cummings Arts Center's galleries.
Special visiting artists and residencies
The Dayton Artist in Residence and the Weissman Visiting Artist programs give our art students the opportunity to work with leading national and international artists through workshops, studio classes and exhibitions. Visiting artists have included Maya Lin, Faith Ringgold, Sol LeWitt, Mary Heilman and Elena Sisto. The department sponsors changing exhibits in the galleries of Cummings Arts Center which relate to course work.
