Kresge Art Center

Home to gallery and exhibit spaces for undergraduate and graduate students

Built in 1959 and renovated in 2005, the Kresge Art Center is home to the Department of Art, Art History and Design. The department offers undergraduate and graduate studies in apparel and textile design, art education, art history and visual culture, graphic design and studio art (ceramics, drawing, electronic art and intermedia, painting, photography, printmaking and sculpture).

Before the opening of the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum, the Kresge Art Center served as the main art museum on campus. The building is home to studio art space with over 6,500 works of art spanning from prehistoric to contemporary times, and features of the museum include exhibitions, collections, public lectures, workshops and publications.

The Kresge Art Center is also home to many gallery and exhibit spaces that can be used by undergraduate and graduate students. Gallery 101 and Gallery 114 are reserved for students’ work, and graduate students even have 24-hour access to many studios and facilities where they can conduct research, such as the Visual Resource Library.
