The FAA addition project is part of the Campus Master Plan and consists of a “Black Box” Performing Arts addition and a Visual Arts educational classroom addition. Both new additions will be located on the west side of the campus, adjacent to the existing theatre. The addition of a blackbox space will serve as a multifunctional space for music performances, rehearsal space for Parkland and community productions, and space for presentations.
 
The Board of Trustees chose IGW Architects as the lead architects to design the project. The project is currently in the Design Development phase with Schematic Design completed in late December 2012. The design continues to move forward with ongoing meetings between the architects and user groups to specific details. The current project schedule calls for the project to be bid late April 2013, with bid results at the May 2013 Trustees meeting for approval. Construction would begin shortly after bids are approved, with completion of the facilities in late summer of 2014. 

Walk of Honor Update


As a safety precaution the Walk of Honor has been temporarily removed during the construction of the new Fine & Applied Arts addition.

The Walk of Honor was established in 2004 as a tribute to our donors who have met or exceeded $250 in total giving. We are working on new ideas to recognize and pay tribute to this special group. As updates become available, we will share them with you. Call 217/351-2464 for more information.
