An urban oasis of creativity. Juxtaposing concrete and conjecture, Brick City is the newest location for art education at Missouri State. As part of the MSU Idea Commons, this set of renovated industrial spaces now houses the entire Department of Art and Design.
Buildings 3 and 4 (BRIK) are home to the classrooms and studio workshops that serve the Foundations studio art classes, Art Education, Sculpture, Drawing, and Painting, as well as the spaces of the Brick City Gallery.
Next door, the newly renovated spaces at Building 1 (BRK1) house the Department’s main offices, the Visual Resources Collection, and the Brick City Design Studio. This building also accommodates the studios and classroom spaces for Ceramics, Printmaking, Graphic Design and Illustration, Animation, Digital Arts, Metals and Jewelry, Photography, and Art History. Additionally, Building 5 will serve as photography lighting studios.
The Student Exhibition Center, provides additional space exclusively for student art exhibitions. You can also experience our virtual art history exhibition.
Come visit the Brick City Gallery, two large spaces housing temporary exhibits featuring the work of artists known regionally, nationally, and internationally, as well as the work of students through BFA exhibitions, and of our faculty in biennial exhibitions. Admission is free and open to all.
