The Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Art and Design in Wrocław is an autonomous higher education institution. It continues the tradition of fine arts education in Wrocław; in 1791 an art school was established in the then Prussian city. Destroyed during the Second World War, it was rebuilt by Polish people and opened in 1946. The first Rector, who contributed to the restoration of the building, was Eugeniusz Geppert.

The Academy is housed in three buildings. The main building with most of the faculties and administration offices, is situated in the city center on the Odra River. The other one, ten minutes away, is the place for Ceramics, Glass and Industrial Design Departments. The building also houses The Museum of the Academy with the faculty members’ works collected from the beginning of the Academy, the place for artist exhibitions. The building is connected with the opened in 2012 Centre for Applied Arts and Innovation. The Centre equipped with the latest technology and workshop equipment in 9 laboratories and 42 classrooms is the biggest part of the Academy easily recognized by its glass construction facade.

In our studios we research visual culture. We are specialists in our fields with variety of competencies. We have the knowledge and experience to enable teaching, research and commercial work at the highest level. We are a unique community, and in our actions we jointly strive to awaken uniqueness in the people we teach and co-create with.

We aim to be the hub of connections between culture, science and art.
