Art & Design Gets a New Home!

We are excited to share with you some images of Suffolk’s new art and design facility, which opened in late-May 2017. The department’s move to the core campus on Beacon Hill will expand opportunities for all majors to explore their creative interests and allow for more art and design collaborations across the University. 

Our new 31,000 sq. ft. facility in the Sawyer building atop Boston’s Historic Beacon Hill boasts state-of-the-art technology classrooms, light-filled studios, a woodshop and fabrication lab, a printmaking facility, lighting lab, art gallery, and much more. 

The department’s close proximity to the Studio Theater, which is also housed in the Sawyer Building, will allow us to further showcase the strengths of Suffolk’s creative campus and expand our curricular partnerships and public programming in exciting new ways.

The Art & Design department has a rich history in Boston dating back to 1923 and has earned its reputation for producing artists and designers who excel in their fields. This new facility honors that legacy and serves as a wonderful testament to Suffolk’s commitment to arts-based programming.
