Valley City State University

Center for the Arts

JE Dunn completed the Center for the Arts project which has become the new creative hub of the Valley City State University campus. The new fine arts center features dynamic spaces for VCSU's art and music programs in a state-of-the-art facility. The art space is comprised of a ceramic's lab, printing, painting, and drawing studios, a digital design lab, a digital photography studio, and a woodshop. An art gallery will provide a highly visible, secure space to showcase student and visiting exhibitions.

The music facilities include a 350-seat performance hall, a 100-seat recital hall/choral room, a band room, a piano/computer lab, a recording and production studio, large and small practice rooms, and faculty offices/studios. Acoustic treatments have been designed for all performance, rehearsal and practice spaces, and larger spaces feature adjustable acoustics and audio/video capabilities.

Gather spaces are found throughout the building, and a grand lobby provides a reception area and showcases the arts of VCSU.
