Out of the Transformative 2020 Vision (located on the CFA website under Forms and Documents) grew the Fine Arts Expansion Initiative. The Board of Regents approved $50 million for the Initiative which will include extensive renovations to the existing Griffith Fine Arts Building and add handicap parking, a patron drop-off zone (off of West College Street) and three stories of new construction. The new state-of-the-art building will include two dance studios, two theatres, an auditorium, recording studio, sound stage, audio and video editing rooms, an art gallery, multiple classrooms, rehearsal facilities, faculty offices and the offices of the dean. The facilities will house the CFA’s sound recording technology, filmmaking, theatre, dance and musical theatre programs. Completion is expected in 2022.
