Center for Ceramic Arts and Sculpture
In the words of Creative Arts Collegium Chair Arthur Skinner '72, "Art itself can change and enrich lives, whether or not one pursues a career in art." Such has always been the belief of the faculty in the Creative Arts. This open-door, come-as-you-are approach; the innovative and academically rigorous coursework; and the infamous 24-hour-access Ceramics Studio and student "huts" have caused tremendous growth in the Creative Arts in recent years.
To continue to grow first-rate programs in the Arts and support the demand by Visual Arts majors and the general education curriculum, the College needs to upgrade current Arts facilities. Most pressing among these needs is a new Center for Ceramic Arts. The facility will expand the current space for students to throw, glaze, fire and display their pieces, and will include areas designated specifically for student art studios.
