Welcome To The National Art School:

The bizarre sandstone structures that make up the National Art School were once used as the Darlington Gaol. More than 700 prisoners were kept here from 1841 to 1912; 76 were hanged. Today, visitors can tour the art school campus and see the circular central building—once the prison chapel—as well as the former morgue with its morose skull and crossbones carvings. Obviously, the campus gallery is worth the trip, showcasing students’ latest masterpieces.
