The new Whitney Arts Center at Sheridan College will be ready for students and faculty when the fall semester starts next month.

Wendy Smith, who's marketing director for the Northern Wyoming Community College District, said the first day of classes is Aug. 22.

She said there's also a lot of landscaping and other work being done outside the building. The $16 million project has involved renovating 12,000 square feet of existing space and 42,000 square feet of additional space to provide a state-of-the-art center for students in fine and performing arts and music.

The new center is two stories tall and includes kilns for ceramics, space for painting, print-making, sculpture and other arts, and classrooms and practice space for band and choral students. According to Facilities Director Kent Andersen, the new center also includes gallery space to showcase works by students and by visiting artists.
