Abroms-Engel Institute for the Visual Arts
University of Alabama at Birmingham
Located directly across the street from the Alys Stephen's Center, the Abroms-Engel Institute for the Visual Arts is UAB's home for the Department of Art and Art History galleries, classrooms, and faculty. Designed in association with Randall Stout, the angular, cantilevered form utilizes a simple material palette of patinaed zinc, glass, and brick in striking ways.
The large, airy lobby and atrium opens to art studios, classrooms, three art galleries, lecture hall, and faculty office space. An arts plaza runs adjacent to the main lobby and a sculpture garden at the bookends the west side of the site.
