The unique Romansque structure of Fine Arts Building is one of downtown's finer architectural achievements. It was originally built to accommodate artists' studios with a central exhibition hall. Today, some of the building's most impressive features have been restored by Brenda Levin & Associates, including the lobby and the Romanesque, arched facade. The lobby is particularly astounding, complete with gargoyles, murals, a fountain and a towering tiled ceiling. Although the building is not currently open for tours, it's worth a visit nonetheless simply to view the exterior and the lobby.
