The Carnaghi Arts Building (CAB) accommodates studio space for several departments in the College of Fine Arts, including the Department of Art, the Department of Interior Architecture + Design, and the School of Theatre. This 114,000+ square foot space provides a unique and collaborative learning environment for students in all art disciplines.
CAB houses the Department of Art’s BFA and MFA student studios, where students can create work while fostering a community between the programs. MFA students have access to the photo documentation room, ceramics shop, multi-use room, woodshop, and the metal shop. This building also contains the MFA Gallery and the Phyllis Straus Gallery, built to host exhibitions that are open to the public.
The Facility For Arts Research (FAR) is a venture of the Florida State University College of Fine Arts, offering space and specialized equipment for experimental printmaking, spatial audio, electronics and digital fabrication to researchers, faculty and students as part of a rigorous interdisciplinary investigation into art-making. FAR engages and educates 21st century makers in the collaborative, cross-disciplinary experiences of contemporary arts research, supporting and promoting the integration of digital and traditional art and design methods to create unique objects that might be impossible to make in other ways.
Located in Tallahassee, Florida, FAR incorporates both Small Craft Advisory Press (SCAP), which blends traditional and digital printmaking processes and promotes collaborations between artists and writers to create artists’ books, and formLab, which gives artists, designers and scientists access to a variety of tools they can use to create unique 3D objects and explore and visualize form in a tactile, multi-sensory way.
