冬季视觉艺术中心打开门,十字边界

After five years of dreaming, conceptualizing, planning, and constructing, a much-anticipated vision has come to life. This fall, the Susan and Benjamin Winter Visual Arts Center at Franklin & Marshall College opened its doors.

On Sept. 29, F&M President Barbara Altmann, the building’s namesakes, Susan and F&M Trustee and Vice Chair of the Now to Next Campaign, Ben Winter ’67, along with nearly 75  other supporters, guests, Trustees and members of the F&M community raised their glasses in honor of the landmark occasion during a blended in-person and virtual champagne toast. Winter has served on the College’s Board of Trustees since 2005 and is currently a vice chairman. Ben is also a co-Chair of Franklin & Marshall’s Now to Next Campaign, with a $200 million goal is the largest campaign in F&M history.

冬天的承诺是有史以来规模最大的礼品单,以该学院由校友 and the second largest in history. Joining the event via a Zoom video conference, Ben Winter said, “Susan and I are deeply committed to Franklin & Marshall College, to the richness of the educational experience here, and to the historic ‘Now to Next’ campaign that is generating the resources to shape the College’s future and bring this building to life. Providing the lead investment for this signature facility demonstrates our belief in the liberal arts education that F&M delivers, as well as the aspirations of its world-class faculty and students.”

President Altmann; Rachel Strompf ’21, art history major; Kostis Kourelis, associate professor of art history; John Holmgren, associate professor of art and department chair of art, art history & film; and Steven Holl from Steven Holl Architects also spoke at the event.

位于校园南侧,冬季视觉艺术中心提供了视觉艺术的制作和研究的一个宏伟的环境。它作为艺术,艺术史和电影部门的新的家(其中包括电影及媒体计划),以及 科琳罗斯韦斯'85和马丁laiks影院, the 吉普森盛大论坛, the Thomas A. & Georgina T. Russo Family Foundation Gallery and the as-yet unnamed West Gallery, both jointly managed by the department of art, art history and film and the 艺术博物馆十字

“As a collective, these spaces and the creativity they spark touch every aspect of F&M’s mission and reinforce our commitment to providing a world-class liberal arts education,” President Altmann said. “The Winter Visual Arts Center responds to the importance of the visual arts for a changing and hurting world. It is a statement to Diplomats past, present, and future that we at F&M believe in the power of art, for self-discovery and self-expression; inquiry and reflection; fun and play; healing, activism, and hope. We at F&M believe art matters.”

The bright structure is unlike any other building on the F&M campus. The building’s visionary, 世界著名建筑师史蒂芬·霍尔, noted that the abundance of trees scattered throughout F&M’s campus provided him with a central idea for composition. As Holl conceptualized the project, he said he considered the pastime of one of the College’s two founders.

“第一个草图是我想富兰克林的风筝,让电力不知何故,卡在树上,”他说。

这种独特的眼光,现在是由建筑物的轮廓认识,上升风筝般进入叶菜篷。通过校园散步或繁华类,行人可以当场此图的另一角度与31000平方英尺的建筑中,雨水反射池的镜像。内前往该雕塑工作室,摄影实验室或电影之前,学生和教师可以欣赏周围的景色另一个无缝集成:在一楼的中心玻璃封闭的论坛,提供布坎南公园的绿色景观的视图。

The unique architecture, combined with the disciplines housed inside—including painting, drawing, sculpture, woodworking, architecture, photography, digital graphics and film—makes the Winter Visual Arts Center the perfect representation of the liberal arts education F&M provides.

艺术跨越边界 - 就像一个文科教育。就像冬天的视觉艺术中心。
