Long Description:
University of Toledo Center for Visual Arts - Designed by Pritzker Prize-wining architect Frank O. Gehry, this boldly sculptural building is home to the University of Toledo’s Art Department, as well as the Museum’s Art Reference Library. As it is structurally connected to the east end of the Museum’s main building, the CVA provides students the invaluable opportunity to incorporate one of the nation’s finest collections into their studies.

The Center for Visual Arts is located adjacent to The Toledo Museum of Art in Toledo's Old West End and is the first University building designed by world- renowned architect Frank Gehry. The design of building provides an interesting and pleasing contrast to the classical appearance of the Museum.
The Center for Visual Arts is a building of metal and glass that exemplifies the contemporary style. In designing the complex, Gehry paid special attention to balancing different geometric shapes, particularly noting the flat roof and the rounded corners of the building. The Center for Visual Arts is often noted for its award winning design and was also featured in Time magazine.
