The Department of Art occupies two buildings adjacent to the Allen Memorial Art Museum. The Venturi ’75 Addition is named for architect Robert Venturi, who, along with Denise Scott Brown and Associates, designed the building as part of a 1976 expansion of the art museum.
This building houses an extensive art library (Clarence Ward Art Library), the Ellen Johnson Gallery for modern and contemporary art, a seminar room, and studios for photography, digital media, drawing, and sculpture.
