About

Art Building F is one of seven buildings that make up the Art Complex, located at the northeastern corner of the intersection of Sam Houston Avenue and 21th Street.

Campus maps of the 1980s and early 1990s identify this building as the Grounds and Custodian Services building. The July 1, 1994 campus map shows the building as the Art Administration office; maps from the late 1990s refer to it as the Fine Arts Office.

The one-story steel frame building is used for the art department administration offices and houses the Gaddis Geeslin Gallery (styled "3G").

Much of the sculpture garden is outside its north lawn, and students develop and create artwork for the outdoor billboard located along its eastern exterior wall.
