The Sharadin Arts Building was expanded into a single, state-of-the-art facility in 2008. The College of Visual and Performing Arts departments of Art & Design and Art Education are housed in this visually stunning facility. The Dean of the college is located here.

The building includes spaces for art teaching labs and studios. A main attraction is the Marlin and Regina Miller Art Gallery, where professionally executed solo and group exhibitions of contemporary art in a variety of mediums is presented. An adjoining student gallery gives the opportunity to showcase work during students' time at KU.

A beautiful entrance and "piazza" function as a meeting place and gateway to campus.  

The building is named in honor of Henry William Sharadin, who was the director of the Art Department from 1902-1916 and 1925-1939.
