Located across the arboretum from Mrak and next to the Mondavi Center, is the Walter A. Buehler Alumni & Visitors Center. This building, the interior, and the grounds are magnificent, since this is the image the university wishes to portray to alumni and visitors. This is the opposite of the temporary buildings.
The Center is used as an art gallery. Art is displayed in two downstairs hallways: in the hallway around the reception room to the west, and in the hallway to the north of the boardroom. These shows are promoted and occasionally have receptions to go along with them. This is not just "incidental" art.
The rest of the art changes, but the
metal horse (Untitled (Horse), 1992) just inside the front doors hasn't moved. It is worth visiting just to see this sculpture. It's been removed now. ]:
There are conference rooms and offices and helpful desk staff. If you do stop by take a moment to walk out into their garden and relax for a minute. Upstairs houses many administration offices.
They conduct on-campus interviews in the building too.
