Pollock Ballroom

The showcase of the Barsema Alumni and Visitors Center is the Pollock Ballroom. A perfect setting for wedding receptions and other elegant events, this stunning space features a large limestone and marble fireplace centered on a wall of windows and doorways providing a view of the Nelson Terrace and adjoining sculpture garden. Ambient lighting in the recessed ceiling enhances the neutral tones of the carpet and linen-covered walls.

Main entry to the Pollock Ballroom is through a set of doorways accessible from the great hall. Two built-in bars flank the entryways and an adjacent catering kitchen accommodates food preparation. The ballroom connects to the Castle Faculty Library which has its own private terrace.
