U. of Arkansas Campus Gets $20 Million for Arts Building

The University of Arkansas at Little Rock announced a $20.3-million grant Monday from the Windgate Charitable Foundation to support construction of a new center for visual-arts education, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette and Arkansas Business write.

The approximately 72,000-square-foot building will house classrooms for drawing, painting, printmaking, art history, illustration, and design as well as two galleries for exhibitions and lectures. The Siloam Springs, Ark.-based foundation has supported arts programs at the Little Rock campus since 1995.
