The 33,000-square-foot complex, located on Hill Street in South Fayetteville, is being redesigned and renovated in two phases by architects with Modus Studio in Fayetteville and El Dorado Inc. in Kansas City, Missouri. Phase one focuses on workshop needs for the art department’s sculpture program, and phase two will include graduate student studios and classroom space for the department’s foundation classes.
Fine Arts Library
The Fine Arts Library opened as a branch in 1951 when the acclaimed Fine Arts Center, designed by Edward Durell Stone, was completed. The building was thought to be one of the first of its kind combining art, architecture, music, dance, speech, and drama in one building with the support spaces of a theater, concert hall, gallery, and library. Through the years, as the academic programs have grown, most programs have moved into other spaces on campus. The classroom space in the building is now fully occupied by the Art Department, while the Fine Arts Library maintains materials relating to art and architecture.
