Knox College Whitcomb Art Center
Galesburg, Illinois

First newly constructed campus facility since the early 1970’s and an important part of the Knox commitment to a liberal arts education

Our new building is a delight...designed for teaching multiple art disciplines, the abundance of light-filled open work areas, studio space, and a gallery-like two-story critique hall enhance student learning and imagination. It also directly impacts our effectiveness as teachers and promotes student’s ability to think of themselves as artists, not just students.
