Facilities

•·     The art department is housed in three buildings on campus: the art building, the pottery/sculpture studio and the Abbey art studios. These buildings house separate facilities for painting, fibers, 2D design, weaving, ceramics, sculpture, photography, drawing and wheel throwing.

•·     The ceramics studio has a wood fire kiln and a rolling gas car kiln, the kinds of high-quality kilns generally available only to graduate students.

•·     The Augustana College Art Museum has a full-time staff and is readily accessible to art classes. Through traveling exhibitions and the extensive permanent collection, students view original works of art as primary texts for class discussion, as well as inspiration for their own work. In 2005, the significant Olson-Brandelle North American Indian Art Collection was donated to Augustana; pieces from this collection are displayed throughout campus, primarily in Centennial Hall and the Tredway Library.
