The artwork displayed throughout the building is on loan to the Chesapeake Student Center through a partnership with the City of Chesapeake Fine Arts Commission. The objective of this partnership is to have a variety of pieces on display for both the campus and general community to enjoy and appreciate. This partnership promotes participation in and appreciation of the fine arts throughout the Chesapeake area. The art work on display was created by local artists including:

J. Kirby                       Mr. Ronko           Barkley Sheaks         Mike Horton
Andi Peck                  Laura Gibbs        H. Hersberger            Karen Kinser

Since 1968, the Chesapeake Fine Arts Commission (CFAC) has served as the united voice for the community by educating the public about the value and significance of art. Both the CFAC and the Chesapeake Student Center believe in the value of increasing access to the arts by providing advocacy and support for art that enriches the cultural vitality of the community.
