About this Facility
Once a fraternity house, this turn-of-the-century Victorian house was converted to an art gallery on the first floor, Cohen Gallery, with apartments for visiting artists and faculty members on the second floor. In a newly constructed building behind the house is Cohen Studios, housing Freshman Foundation studios and wide-open, flexible spaces for various projects.
Home to studio space dedicated to Freshmen Foundations students, Cohen Studios provides a wide open, versatile space for a variety of works of all shapes and sizes to be created and presented. Bright, young artists are introduced to the space as part of their orientation and is leveraged throughout the first year and beyond. Cohen Studios provides a significant amount of the over 126,000 square feet of studio and classroom space available to art and design students.
In addition to its use as dedicated studio space for first-year art and design students, Cohen Studios is also frequently the preferred venue for senior thesis exhibitions, art shows, performances, and receptions. Cohen Studios is conveniently located on the same property as Cohen Gallery.
