students working in the VRC

The VRC provides and facilitates access to images, imaging, and related information resources for teaching, learning, and research in the Department of Art and Art History. We support AAH students and faculty through:

  • A digital image and multimedia collection representing student work, images used for teaching, videos from the Visiting Artist program, and other content reflecting the Department’s research and curriculum
  • Computer stations, software, training, and support in digital imaging, image research, and classroom presentations
  • Equipment, facilities, and training for documenting creative work and research, and support for designated classrooms within the department

See the submenu items to the right for more information on all of the VRC's resources and services.

The VRC is located in the Visual Arts Complex, RM 310
