A Home for the Arts
A creative community
The arts at Bucknell, though strong and vibrant, are currently scattered across campus. While “Arts. Everywhere.” is our mantra, the University has long needed a focal point and home for the arts. Imagine the creative energy that would fill a space dedicated to the artistic process.
The planned Multidisciplinary Arts and Creativity Complex will place the arts in a highly visible, central location, which will underscore their importance to the Bucknell curriculum and community and dramatically increase teaching, learning and creative opportunities for faculty and students. The complex will provide a new home for the arts that will increase their impact on and availability to our entire community, and to the creative culture we aspire to make a daily part of campus life.
This building will provide a locus for teaching and creation in arts disciplines and provide creative resources for students and faculty across the curriculum. Anchored by art and art history, this facility will advance student and faculty work in diverse artistic fields with such components as studio and collaborative spaces, a digital media lab and new display space that more thoroughly integrates our arts collection into education and the visitor experience of Bucknell.
The building’s structure and design will encourage and model creativity and make this visionary space a hub for campus creative enterprise – an interactive landmark for the entire Bucknell community for visitors to our campus and for the Susquehanna Valley region.
