The School of Art is housed in a spacious, eco-conscious building located on east campus in close proximity to other facilities dedicated to the arts on campus including the Hugh Hodgson School of Music, the UGA Performing Art Center and the Georgia Museum of Art. The Dodd’s facilities and equipment are state-of-the-art, and our studio faculty and graduate students are generously accommodated—all with their own dedicated studios. In addition to traditional classroom and studio spaces, the School of Art has several fabrication labs and project spaces designed to facilitate collaborative, cross-disciplinary initiatives. The Dodd is also home to the Art Library and multiple gallery spaces.
Additionally, a stand-alone facility devoted to ceramics was completed in 2011 and is located adjacent to the main building on east campus. On north campus, the Thomas Street Art Complex houses both sculpture and jewelry & metalwork, and the Broad Street Studios house the Interior Design program.
