The Gwen Frostic School of Art at Western Michigan University

The Gwen Frostic School of Art is committed to engaging students in critical thinking and creative problem solving to prepare them to pursue a professional career in visual art and design. Gwen Frostic School of Art is housed in a cutting-edge, environmentally conscious facility with 140,000 square feet of new and renovated spaces. It is equipped for both traditional and experimental artmaking processes, and constructed with the health and safety of our students in mind. Art History, Studio & Design students have the opportunity to experience compelling contemporary exhibitions at the Richmond Center for Visual Arts (RCVA). The Center features several exhibition spaces: the Albertine Monroe-Brown Gallery for temporary exhibitions of national and international artists, the Rose Netzorg and James Wilfrid Kerr Permanent Collection Gallery for exhibitions of works from the University Art Collection and other special exhibitions, and the Atrium Gallery, primarily for sound and video art. The Eleanor R. and Robert A. DeVries Student Art Gallery is dedicated to Frostic School of Art students. Exhibitions are free and open to the public throughout the academic year.
