In the first ever post-COVID exhibition, Bardwell’s debut showcase will be held on Sept. 15 in the evening. Hallmarked by its modern architecture and elements of natural light, Bardwell combines collaborative workspaces with student expression. 


Bardwell hall was completed May 2021, ahead of schedule. Faculty and students just started using the center for classes and studio art.
