Welcome to the De Pree Art Center & Gallery, more commonly known as De Pree. It may be your home away from home for 4 years. The Art Department moved into De Pree, a remodeled furniture factory, in 1982; so you're getting the advantages of a modern, well-equipped facility combined with the history of craftsmanship found in an older building.
