The inspections have been passed, the paint is dry, and the floors have been carpeted. In other words, construction of the Justine V.R. “Nita” Milliken Wing of the Milliken Fine Arts Building is officially complete. Equipment is being moved into classrooms, studios, and offices now, but classes will not be held in the new wing until spring term. The wing will be dedicated in honor of Mrs. Milliken on April 18 in conjunction with Founder’s Day celebrations. “The design of the wing is comfortable, visually stimulating, and-most importantly -will be functional for our students,” said Mac Boggs, Chair of the Art Department. “The wing also provides specific studios for every course taught, which is something many other art departments in the country do not have.” On January 11, a digital time capsule was attached to the outside of the new wing. The capsule contains thoughts and well wishes in electronic form from students, alumnae, and community members and will be sealed for 100 years. The new wing, funded by a $2 million gift from Mrs. Justine V.R. “Nita” Milliken, houses lecture studios, faculty loft studios, kiln and firing yards, a computer-aided design (CAD) lab, an additional art gallery, and a historic preservation room.
