About the Building
Designed by Chicago architect Harry Weese, the Conrad A. Elvehjem Building was opened in 1970. The Elvehjem Building houses the Department of Art History, Chazen Museum of Art, and Kohler Art Library. There are entrances on the south and north sides of the building. Auditoria are on the lower level. Paige Court is a spacious and beautiful marble-walled second-floor space used for the display of art, as a site for special temporary installations, and for public events. The Oscar F. and Louise Greiner Mayer Gallery, commonly referred to as the Mayer Gallery, is traditionally used for temporary exhibitions, mostly of works on paper.
