USGS Art Hallway

The Art Hallway consists of two available wall spaces on either side of a long, wide hallway. The 12-ft. high wall spaces are 119 ft. and 45 ft. long. The remainder of the space is floor-to-ceiling glass with plants; the windows provide natural lighting and are covered with UV-filtering film. To get to the Art Hallway, visitors enter through the Visitors' Entrance, pass the Auditorium and turn left into the Art Hallway. The Art Hallway, which connects the auditorium with the Lobby, Main Elevators and stairway to the cafeteria, is a main thoroughfare for visitors and USGS employees.
