Only 5 prints are available featuring the beloved Crouse College, the home to the College of Visual and Performing Arts at Syracuse University. My freshman foundation classes were held there, as well as rituals for TBS (the marching band sorority I was a member of). We walked through the stairwell depicted to enter the building, and then were greeted by a copy of the Winged Victory of Samothrace. I attended music concerts in Setnor Auditorium which features sumptuous wood, gorgeous stained glass windows, and a beautiful organ. The exterior of the building was design in the Romanesque Revivalist style, features a bell tower, and relief carvings honoring the arts. The building was dedicated in 1889 as the John Crouse Memorial College for Women.
SU was America's first art school to grant a degree in the discipline and was an integral leader in co-education for both sexes, according to the NPS. Syracuse used the building to offer classes to both women and men, against the wishes of John Crouse.
