The Fine Arts building is the home of the Department of Visual Arts where IMDA students have access to a variety of undergraduate studios and labs. These include the Cinematic Arts Production Cage that allows graduate students to check out IMDA-only equipment, along with undergraduate equipment. This ranges from HD cameras to several projectors, mac mini’s, related equipment and state of the art film, video labs including private editing suites, and additional production spaces with grid lighting and multiple backdrops for a broad range of video/photography, green-screening etc. Three output bureaus are available to IMDA students, including the campus-wide CommonVision and the Visual Art Department’s I/O Bureau and the Photo Cage/Photo Output Bureau, all offering large formatting inkjet and related output. In addition, Visual Arts offers color-and-black and white darkroom facilities with both wet and dry processes, copy stands, and experimental processes. Print media includes access to all toxic-free processes including lithography, etching, woodblock/linoleum, silkscreen, a vacuum table and digital and photo/darkroom processes. We offer graduate students an Epilogue laser cutter; 2D and 3D animation facilities, and interactive media including both hand and digital processes.

The Fine Arts Building is also where the Center for Art Design and Visual Culture (CADVC) is located. This is a premier exhibition and screening space of about 3,500 square feet where IMDA students often work as Research Assistants and where they display their M.F.A. Thesis Exhibition.
