The new Center for the Visual Arts

Construction began this summer on the newly envisioned Center for the Visual Arts. The plan includes complete renovation of both Van Deusen Hall and the Art Annex/heating plant with an integrating walkway and classrooms connecting the two former buildings. This multi-year project will result in the collection of all School of Art programs having a home in one building. For further information please contact the Director of the School of Art, Christine Havice.

Center for the Visual Arts Construction Zone Safety Tips

Construction work that surrounds the Art Annex will be taking place throughout the fall 2014 and spring 2015 semesters. The construction crews will be working diligently to keep all of you safe while they complete their work. But they need your help. By following a few simple steps we can all stay safe and have a productive year:
  • Be aware of your surroundings at all times
  • When entering and exiting the Art Annex please refrain from using cell phones or any other device that might impair your hearing (i.e. ear buds, headphones, etc.)
  • Look above for potential overhead loads, do not walk underneath if present
  • There will be active construction near you, keep this in mind at all times
  • Listen for backup alarms and watch for moving construction vehicles
  • Yield to oncoming traffic
  • Do not open closed gates or cross over into the construction zone
  • Obey all posted site signage
  • Do not loiter in the area highlighted in yellow, unless a vehicle is present please move efficiently through to the other side.
  • Check with your instructors about safe times to drop off and pick up your personal goods, supplies, or materials. Typically this will be after 4pm Monday through Friday and
    Weekends when construction is not actively occurring.
  • In the event your access is blocked by construction traffic please contact Jake Melton at (216) 704-9551
  • In the event of an emergency call 911

We understand that the construction process is an inconvenience. Your patience and
understanding are greatly appreciated as we build your new Center for the Visual Arts.
