Students have access to a variety of resources on campus. Student exhibitions of works both finished and in progress are presented regularly in Chandler Ullmann Hall. Professional art exhibitions are scheduled by the Lehigh University Art Galleries each semester in addition to the lectures, gallery talks and visiting artists and architects that supplement classroom and studio work.
Chandler-Ullmann Hall houses our academic classrooms and lecture halls, and our painting, drawing, sculpture and architecture studios along with a computer laboratory equipped with BIM, drafting, 3D modeling and visualization software. Students have access to the wood shop in this building as well.
Through the Lehigh University Art Galleries (LUAG) and museum operations students have access to a vast and varied permanent collection of paintings, sculptures and photographs. LUAG maintains and develops Lehigh’s permanent art collection of over 13,000 objects. In addition, LUAG presents temporary exhibitions designed to provide visual literacy as part of the Lehigh learning experience. Approximately 20 exhibitions a year across Lehigh's three campuses introduce contemporary topics in art and culture to students, faculty, staff and local communities. LUAG also sponsors regular gallery talks, lectures, exhibition openings, meet the artist events and workshops. Students taking Museum Studies courses work directly in research and hands-on study of the objects in the permanent collection.
The Wilbur Powerhouse Mac computing labs support several interdisciplinary programs and courses, from nearly all colleges and majors on the main campus. The lab’s computers host a wide variety of industry standard applications for design, graphics, photography, video and CAD.
