HIGHER EDUCATION: Fine Arts Center | Fresno Pacific University, Fresno | In Progress
The Fine Arts Building at Fresno Pacific University will consolidate the college’s arts, music and theater departments. The building will be located along Butler Avenue on the site of the current seminary housing apartments on Fresno Pacific’s main campus in southeast Fresno. The project will feature two large music rehearsal rooms, a black box theater, a recital hall with 120 to 200 seats, art studios, music classrooms and offices for staff and faculty. A scene shop and a costume shop will also be included if enough funds are raised for the full scope of the project. The ultimate goal of the project is to house the scattered performing arts departments on campus and help the music department achieve accreditation by the National Association of Schools and Music.
