David C. Driskell Center

College Park, Maryland

The David C. Driskell Center for the Study of Visual Arts and Culture of African Americans and the African Diaspora celebrates the legacy of David C. Driskell - Distinguished University Professor Emeritus of Art, Artist, Art Historian, Collector and Curator. The center provides an intellectual home for artists, museum professionals, art administrators, and scholars who are interested in broadening the field of African Diasporic studies. The design challenge centered upon the conversion of the historic Cole Field House aquatic center into a vibrant and active art gallery at the center of the campus.
