Exterior view of the Leu Center for Visual Arts


The Department of Art is located in the Leu Center for the Visual Arts (pictured at right). This 40,000 square foot facility combines the latest technology with traditional studio spaces, a student gallery, and a 118 seat audio/visual classroom for lectures and other multi-media presentations. All studio and design courses take place in large classrooms specifically designed for drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture and ceramics. The Design Communication courses are taught in two iMac graphics labs combining 40 computer workstations.

The Leu Art Gallery and Gallery 121 are free and open to the public. Each space highlights special exhibits - a broad range of work by Belmont students, faculty and alumni - as well as the Middle Tennessee Regional Student Art Exhibition, a juried exhibition showcasing exceptional middle and high school student artwork from around the region. The Leu Gallery features work by professional artists. Previous exhibitions include works by Carrol Claor, Frederick Hart, Dorothy Gillespie, the Nagel Institute for the Study of World Christianity traveling exhibit and prominent Nashville artists.
