A compelling fine arts education building housing art galleries, classrooms, music studios and a performance theater for the University and the surrounding community. Flynn Battaglia’s design established a new image for the arts at the university as well as fitting into the context and vocabulary of the campus. The Fine Arts Center houses a 350-seat theater, orchestra pit, fly tower, scene shop, dressing rooms, galleries, art and music studios, classrooms and office spaces for the Theater and Fine Arts Departments. Faculty and students from all university departments are encouraged to use the Quick Center as an academic resource through class tours, internships, class projects, and honors exhibitions. The art center’s galleries are currently used for tours, seminars, and lectures from First Year Experience introductory tours to pre-med and business students’ Art of Observation program. The third floor Loft is an inspirational meeting and study space for all university students. Poetry slams, club meetings, foreign films, recitals and more are encouraged throughout the year.
