Los Angeles, California 90007
The USC Roski Graduate Fine Arts (IFT) Building is located three blocks north of the University Park Campus at the intersection of South Flower and 30th Street. The building houses the Master of Fine Arts and the Master of Public Arts Studies programs, the Advanced Photography Lab, and the school's business office.
The building features the Gayle and Ed Roski Master of Fine Arts Gallery, a stunning 2,000 square foot gallery dedicated to exhibitions by the school's MFA students, as well as spacious studios for each of the Master of Fine Arts students and research facilities for the Master of Public Art Studies program. Generous gifts to the School of Fine Arts provided for other significant spaces including the Philion Round Table, a conference room named for Beth and Jim Philion, and the Fine Arts Associates Wood Shop.
The building was dedicated in 2005, and was previously used for manufacturing--most recently for Lucky Jeans. The conversion of the raw, industrial space was designed by Altoon + Porter Architects of Los Angeles.
