Friends University announced today a plan to move its Visual Arts Education Program to the Delano District.
The plan will renovate a 111-year-old building and convert it to a gallery, offices, and a lecture hall. A nearby warehouse will also be put to good use.
The Friends campus buildings currently used for the program are just not big enough to meet the students’ requirements.
Friends Senior Sunny Walker says, “It's really exciting to see the university...really encouraging."
Friends hopes the buildings can be ready for the beginning of the 2013-14 school year.
