Sage Art Center

Sage Art Center is located on the north end of River Campus between Anderson and Wilder residential halls. The expansive and adjoining studio spaces of Sage are conducive to studio production that recognizes the importance of peer influence and invites interdisciplinary explorations. Undergraduate studio assistants monitor the spaces, making them available to currently enrolled students in the evenings and on weekends. A full-time studio technician provides students with technical assistance, maintains equipment, and assures a clean and safe working environment.

The ASIS Gallery, situated at the entrance of Sage Art Center, presents an ongoing exhibition of current work from all studio courses. The painting, sculpture, drawing and multimedia studios take advantage of the Center's glass exterior walls, which not only provide natural light but create a sense of openness. The studio areas for majors occupy a large part of the building's perimeter. Sage maintains several safe, ventilated, and well-equipped labs. A photography lab, a wood shop, and a metal shop, are located at the core of the building; adjacent to them are a small seminar space, a digital sound editing suite, and a plaster and clay working area. A well-equipped computer lab and both digital and analogue editing suites are found on the upper level as well. The lower level of Sage houses storage areas, lockers, faculty studios, and two seminar spaces, the larger of which can be converted into a performance art space or video studio.
