Completed in December of 1999 with a total interior footage of over 20,000 square feet, the Charles A. Sorber Visual Arts Studios has garnered accolades from everyone who has toured the facility. The Washington Assessment Group, a specially contracted unit by the UT system in 2005 to assess research programs at UTPB acknowledged it was the best art facility they had ever seen.
The main portion of the building houses the printmaking studio, drawing and painting studios, art history lecture room, a full kitchen, faculty and staff offices, and the Nancy Fyfe Cardozier Gallery.
The 3D wing which is separated from the main building across an enclosed courtyard and sculpture garden house the ceramics studio, sculpture studio, ceramic shell room, metal shop, wood shop, and exterior kiln and foundry yard.
Besides the Charlse A. Sorber Visual Arts Studios, there is also a 20 seat MacLab in the Library.
