The new UK Arts and Visual Studies building grand opening is on September 8 from 5-9 p.m. at 236 Bolivar Street.
"The new home of the School will be a 21st century research laboratory that fosters collaborative, interdisciplinary projects. Student and faculty studios will be housed in close proximity to state-of-the-art new media labs, a multipurpose 3-D fabrication lab, a photography suite, a ceramics facility, printmaking shop, wood shop, metal shop, as well as drawing, painting and design workshops. There will be spaces that foster experimental and cross-disciplinary conversations and critiques. Faculty and students should find the building to be both larger but also more intimate than the Reynolds Building and without Reynolds' structural and environmental issues."
"The opening will feature an alumni art exhibition , classroom and studio demonstrations, music from WRFL, tours, student art, food trucks and more!"
