Made its debut with a grand-opening ceremony Friday, Feb. 22.

The three-story facility features a 287-seat recital hall, museum of art, fabrication lab, electroacoustic composition lab, soundproof rehearsal spaces, and music practice rooms.

By promoting and cultivating visual and performing arts, the University will strengthen its leadership role in arts education in northern Nevada and continue to showcase top student and professional performances and exhibitions in music, theater, dance and visual art. The new building will further the University’s connection to the Reno community and create a model of cooperation that also will positively affect the region’s economy.
