The Abroms-Engel Institute for Visual Arts


The Abroms-Engel Institute for Visual Arts is the home for the University of Alabama at Birmingham Department of Art and Art History and University Galleries. Art History, Time-based Media and Graphic Design classrooms, along with administrative offices and faculty offices, are housed in the building. The facility is named for lead donors Hal and Judy Abroms, as well as Ruth and the late Marvin Engel. Los Angeles-based architect Randall Stout designed the building. Hoar Construction oversaw the construction of the building. “AEIVA creates a dynamic indoor and outdoor public space that physically and visually connect with the Alys Stephens Performing Arts Center across the street,” said UAB President Ray L. Watts, M.D.
