H3 is currently working with the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs’ Department of Visual and Performing Arts for a new Visual and Performing Arts Center and Site Micro Master Plan.
Designed in collaboration with Semple Brown Design, the new Center for the Visual and Performing Arts will provide state-of-the-art space for Film, Film Production, Music, Theater and Dance. In partnership with other College of Letters and Science departments, lecture and teaching facilities for Visual Art 2D and 3D Foundation Studios, Drawing, Painting, Sculpture, Photography, Ceramics, Digital Imaging, Video, Art History and Folklore Studies will also be part of the facility master plan. The new Center is intended to provide an administrative and collaborative home for the Department’s programs, increasing interdisciplinary exchange between units and raising the visibility of the arts in the community.
In addition to teaching and learning spaces, the building will also contain a new facility for the Galleries of Contemporary Art. Designed as a completely flexible and transformable gallery space, this museum-quality exhibition gallery and adjacent laboratory support spaces will provide a venue for the University’s contemporary art and culture programs.
