Geissler Gallery Renovations

Geissler Gallery is a multi-purpose public space. In addition to our visual arts curriculum, Geissler Gallery offers four different exhibits throughout the year. The fall and winter exhibits highlight the work of professional artists, and the spring exhibits are reserved for our annual student art shows.

Geissler is the home to the visual arts at SBS. Music classrooms are also a significant part of the building. In addition, it is the setting of several important SBS events each year, including convocation, awards ceremony, family weekend, informal concerts, and Farewell to Seniors. This project supports the School’s commitment to the arts.

The Benefits of Geissler Gallery Improvements

  • New skylights in the building will improve ventilations, insulation, and natural light for the gallery and the art studio. Some skylights are currently leaking.
  • New carpet or flooring improves the attractiveness and functionality.
  • New doors and skylights will have a positive impact on energy savings and student comfort.
  • Regrade of front entrance will improve drainage.
