The McMurtry Building, Home of Art & Art History Dept., will serve as an interdisciplinary hub for the arts at Stanford. It will further the ongoing development of the Arts District at the entrance to campus. The new facility, named in recognition of Deedee and Burt McMurtry (MS ’59, PhD ’62), will be a cornerstone in Stanford’s initiative to enhance and expand the role the arts play throughout campus.
The McMurtry Building will house undergraduate art practice studios (including painting, drawing, sculpture, experimental media and digital production, photography, printmaking, design), film screening, film editing, classrooms and seminar rooms, along with the Art and Architecture Library, and gallery space for student work.
The McMurtry Building is to be located at 355 Roth Way located between the Cantor Arts Center and Parking Structure 1, on the site of the previously demolished Anatomy Building.
