The building will house academic, gallery, and performance spaces for three departments
The Brigham Young University Board of Trustees has approved plans to construct a new Arts Building for the College of Fine Arts and Communications. It will be built where the Harris Fine Arts Center (HFAC) is currently located.
In addition to the college of Fine Arts and Communications, the new building will house offices for the college, as well as for the departments of Art, Design and Theatre & Media Arts (TMA). It will also host academic spaces, galleries, performance spaces, media viewing rooms, a cinema and a production studio. The other current occupants of the HFAC, the School of Music, will move to the new Music Building which is currently being constructed.
“The arts and music programs are beacons of excellence for the university,” said Shane Reese, BYU academic vice president. “We look forward to these two new beautiful buildings which will accentuate the amazing talents of our students, faculty and staff who work in that college.”
