James Parlin, MFA
Edinboro University Art Department students enjoy state-of-the-art learning facilities, located primarily in Loveland, East, Doucette and Hamilton Halls.
Loveland Hall is the University’s center of artistic creativity and expression. Built in 1931, the building’s spacious rooms are filled with shop areas for studio art courses such as printmaking, woodworking, painting, metals and jewelry. Loveland is also home to Bates Gallery, where student art work and thesis shows are presented. The attached Loveland Annex contains studios and work areas for ceramics and sculpture.
Home to the Art Department offices, Doucette Hall features lecture halls, film and animation labs, graphics and web design studios and classrooms, and is also notably the site of Bruce Gallery, which houses the permanent art collection of the University and hosts local, regional and national art exhibitions by emerging and established artists, as well as annual faculty and student art shows.
East Hall was designed specifically to cater to the needs of the University’s ceramics and sculpture students. The modern brick building includes ceramics and sculpture studios, classrooms and a separate area for glazing.
