Armory Gallery

The Art Armory is home to the school's main office, gallery, and classrooms for Foundations and Drawing. One of Blacksburg's historic buildings and a former community gymnasium it is situated on Draper Road, a lively intersection of the town and campus. The Armory's spacious structure, high ceilings, and abundant natural light furnish a striking example of innovative architectural conversion. The Armory Art Gallery is operated as an educational and outreach service of the University. Its exhibition calendar includes work by students, faculty, and artists of regional and national importance. The XYZ gallery, located at 221 N. Main St., is home to the Student Art Association, which operates an independent program of exhibitions by students and local artists. A prominent feature of the Armory is its 1700 sq. foot Mezzanine.
