The O’More College of Architecture, Art, & Design is housed in two buildings: Hitch Hall and Leu Center for Visual Arts.

Hitch Hall

interior design, fashion design & fashion merchandising

More than 22,000 square feet in Hitch Hall, the former science building, was transformed into a state-of-the-art design school by O’More School faculty who provided all aspects of the design, finishes, and furniture selection for the new space. Programs in Fashion and Interior Design are taught in these studios.

Within these spaces, students have access to cutting-edge equipment such as 3D printers, laser cutter, high-speed plotters, EFI/Optitex computerized pattern-drafting and 3D virtual fit software and hardware, and industry-standard manufacturing equipment. Our experienced faculty and well-equipped facilities help foster an environment where students are offered numerous opportunities to explore their creative talents.

Leu Center for the Visual Arts

art, design communications & experiential design

The Leu Center for the Visual Arts is a 40,000 square foot facility combining the latest technology with traditional studio spaces, a student gallery, and a 119-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 Communications classrooms include over 50 Macintosh workstations running the most current industry-standard software.

Highlighting a broad range of artwork by Belmont students, faculty and alumni, as well as other professional artists, the Leu Art Gallery and Gallery 121 are free and open to the public. It is Gallery 121’s mission to promote local and regional emerging artists, while the Leu Art Gallery’s museum-quality space focuses more exclusively on well established, mid-career level artists. Previous exhibitions include works by Carroll Cloar, Frederick Hart, Dorothy Gillespie, Todd Williamson, and many prominent Nashville artists.
