Faulconer Gallery

The Faulconer Gallery in Bucksbaum presents exhibitions year-round, ranging from the annual Student Art Salon to traveling exhibitions from world-renowned artists. Students work with the gallery’s professional staff  as interns, gallery attendants, and arts outreach providers for the community. Classes often examine the College's art collection in the Print and Drawing Study Room in Burling Library, and may curate exhibitions drawn from the collection.

Les Duke Track

In the fall of 2002, the Les Duke Track and Field Complex underwent a major renovation. The facility now features a new 400m synthetic 8-lane surface with synthetic runways and high jump surfaces. The upgrades also include exact models of equipment used at the 2003 World Track and Field Championships: steeple barriers, pole vault and high jump pits with top-of-the line crank standards, Olympic level throwing cage for hammer and discus and top-of-the line hurdles. The final piece was the construction of a two-story finish line building equipped with a fully computerized Lynx timing system.

Natatorium

Grinnell's natatorium is part of the Charles Benson Bear '39 Recreation and Athletic Center that was completed in 2010. The natatorium reflects the latest technology and design, offering swimmers a magnificent place to compete, train, or pursue personal fitness goals. The flexibility of the facility is one of its greatest strengths. Two movable bulkheads can reshape the pool for different purposes. The pool and deck portion of the natatorium were named after former Grinnell College president Russell K. Osgood in October 2010.
