GROUNDBREAKING DATE SET
FOR ART AND COMMUNICATION CENTER- 5/12/06
several years of planning, the College set groundbreaking for the Art and
Communication Center for Saturday, July 8. Last week, the Board of Trustees
gave the go-ahead for construction of the $8.7 million building.
"We've been working on this
building for years, making sure it addresses new technologies in communication
and provides creative options for theater and art," said President Steven
Among other things, the Art
and Communication Center will include a "black box" theatre; a flexible
space that will be used for student drama productions and for teaching
"The building's design allows
for expansion," Timmermans said. "Trinity's growth requires planning not
only for the present, but also for the future."
The two-story structure will
be situated along the creek on the east side of campus, south of the Mitchell
Memorial Gymnasium. The Board's action stems from the faithful response
of constituents. The College has received about $6.5 million in gifts and
pledges for the Art and Communication Center and hopes to raise the remaining
$2.2 million during construction.
Everyone is invited to the
July 8 groundbreaking. Ceremonies begin at 9 a.m. at the parking lot directly
south of the Mitchell Memorial Gymnasium. See campus
map for exact location.
