VAIS: Visual Arts Installation Space

VAIS, in Art Building 109, is a professional quality sound and video capable gallery space and the showcase for our young artists participating in grant-supported shows and projects, or working collaboratively with faculty to break new ground. The space serves visiting artists, BFA Idea Grant Project solo exhibitions, the Sculpture/Ceramics Senior Show, the Video/Animation Night showcasing students’ work, and more. Every fall semester, VAIS serves as a non-traditional classroom for the 3D section of Foundation Studio Concepts, introducing students to direct invention with materials in space.
