The Atlanta University Center (AUC) Coordinated Art Program offered an enhanced and diverse arts curriculum to students across the consortium, providing instruction in art education, art history, ceramics, design, drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, weaving, and other media. The program also hosted an artist-in-residence program spearheaded by Talladega College alumnus Hans Bhalla, who served as chair of the Spelman College Department of Art from 1967 to 1979. The extensive roster of artists-in-residence whose artworks are represented in the College’s collection include Benny Andrews, Herman “Kofi” Bailey, Floyd Coleman, Sam Gilliam, and Barrington Watson, among others.
