The Longfellow Arts Building is amid quite a transformation from its former life as Longfellow Elementary School to what has been described as a new hub for art studios, gallery space and offices. The project will provide space for modern studios, classrooms, critique spaces and student exhibitions in the visual arts and dance, including a state-of-the-art digital media lab — all in a single campus location. Currently, visual arts and dance facilities are scattered across six facilities ranging from the third floor of the Visual Arts Center to numerous off-campus locations. The Longfellow Arts Building will for the first time enable faculty and students engaged in dance, painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, architecture, printmaking, woodworking, and digital media and design to work together under a single roof, creating a cohesive arts community and numerous new opportunities for artistic synergy.
