Art and Cinematic Arts Building Slated for Construction

This spring, the university’s board of trustees approved the construction of a new art and cinematic arts building east of Pennington Hall and south of the Klages Center. It will provide approximately 12,000 square feet of space for the studio arts, interior design, graphic design, illustration and cinematic arts majors. Construction is scheduled to begin this fall, with an anticipated opening in the fall of 2025.

The new facility will include a state-of-the-art ceramics, glass and 3D sculpture lab, an outdoor courtyard as an expanded production space, gallery space, a storage area for art collections, and a 80-seat theater.

“This new building offers multifaceted benefits, providing a conducive environment for artistic exploration and expression, along with fostering a sense of community and collaboration among students,” says Marvin Eans, chair of the Department of Art and Design. “Beyond that, the presence of a new facility will enhance the university’s academic reputation and attract talented individuals seeking a holistic educational experience rooted in faith and creativity.”

Help inspire the next generation of artists and filmmakers by giving to this project. Naming opportunities, including theater seats, are available. Give to the art building online or contact us at 503-554-2115 or to learn more.
