Whitcomb Art Center

Knox's newest academic building, the Whitcomb Art Center is home to the art and art history departments. The modern, technologically sophisticated building will provide a series of spaces-studio, seminar, and classroom-for the study and creation of two-dimensional, three-dimensional, and multimedia works of art.

The Dick and Joan Whitcomb Art Center includes studios for painting, printmaking, design, sculpture, ceramics, drawing and digital art, as well as metalworking and woodworking shops. The building also includes seminar and classroom teaching venues, as well as faculty offices, and dedicated open studio space for faculty and seniors working on capstone projects. A two-floor critique hall offers a gallery-like setting in which to evaluate works.

This environmentally friendly structure was designed with future LEED certification in mind. It is energy efficient, with a sawtooth roof that fills the second floor studio spaces with even, natural light in all seasons. Native prairie plants surrounding the building are nourished by storm runoff. The striking metal exterior is accented with repurposed lumber from a shed that once stood on the building site and Purington pavers from the streets of Galesburg. Heart pine, reclaimed from the floor of Alumni Hall, is featured in the building's classroom.
