Santikos LOBBY Gallery

One of the more flexible exhibition spaces, the Santikos Lobby Gallery has been the setting for student exhibitions and for exhibitions that complement major exhibitions in the Russell Hall Galleries. Anchoring the lobby is a massive tapestry, Vertical Landscape (below), by Jon Eric Riis, one of America’s master fiber artists. This large piece (20’ x 16’) was originally commissioned by IBM for their Atlanta regional complex and was donated by the artist to the Southwest School of Art in 2011.
