The new Music & Art Center creates much-needed studio space for the arts and acoustically designed rehearsal and performance spaces for music. It is organized into a music wing and an art wing, connected by a shared student gallery lobby.

The center is a wood, masonry and steel-framed structure with predominantly brick veneer and metal siding. The building’s design relies on solid forms created by the classic terra-cotta brick masses in contrast to large compositions of glass and windows.
