CIA's brand new George Gund Building (completed in 2015) was designed by Stantec architects to be an ideal space for learning about, making, and exhibiting art. It is adjoined to CIA's Joseph McCullough Center for the Visual Arts (completed in 1915). Both buildings are located at 11610 Euclid Avenue.

The Jessica R. Gund Memorial Library on the first floor of the JMC has collections specifically developed for the visual artist, designer, and craftsperson.

CIA’s Reinberger Gallery hosts roughly 10 exhibitions each year. All exhibitions are free and open to the public, and many include lectures, films, or informal gallery talks. In addition to annual student, faculty, and scholastic exhibitions, recent shows have featured works by internationally known artists, such as Andy Warhol and Ansel Adams. See the upcoming exhibition schedule.
As one of the only art and design schools to assign studio space in a student’s sophomore year, CIA ensures personal studio space until graduation.
