Herrick Conservatory  

 

Home to a diverse array of plants—and some fish—the facility is also filled with people. Students and faculty members from the biological sciences department conduct research there, students from other majors come to study and sketch, and student members of the Herrick Conservatory and Sustainability Club help with its upkeep. 

School of Art Collection

Room 144, Center for the Visual Arts

The Kent State School of Art Collection started when author James A. Michener donated the proceeds from his book about the May 4, 1970 shootings—Kent State: What Happened and Why—to the Kent State University School of Art in 1971. 

He had spent several months in Kent researching material for the book, and his donation was intended to help the school acquire works for its permanent collection to be housed in the new School of Art Building, which was completed in 1972.
