Studio art is taught at South Campus, including sculpture, woodworking, painting, and welding. The Art and Design programs serve nearly 40% of the student population at Cazenovia College, while South Campus accommodates nearly 100% of studio art majors. To serve this valuable and growing student population appropriately, an expansion of the South Campus facility is necessary through the creation of a new structure located between South Campus “A” and “B”. Creating this adjoining, state-of-the-art work space for the studio arts, as a first phase of the project, will allow us to later refurbish the “A” building for enhanced instructional support. This second phase of the South Campus transformation would include upgraded mechanical systems, a new roof, and reconfigured interior walls in the “A” building for seminar, office, and classroom space.
The South Campus site on Albany Street remains the College’s most visible piece of real estate. The current condition of the property is not reflective of the image we have worked so hard to improve. This major initiative will not only influence our academic programs, but also will showcase the College and serve as an attractive first impression to all of those who live in and visit Cazenovia.
