The artwork throughout Latham Hall is on loan from the Miles and Ruth Horton Collection of The Virginia Tech Foundation. The 16 contemporary pieces by Virginia artists were chosen for their organic themes and tie in with the interdisciplinary research that is conducted in the building.

Artwork is displayed on all floors except the first, which is dedicated to the plant and soil preparation areas as well as large-size growth chambers.
